SnapSports®, the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of premium modular sport surfaces, and official flooring of USA Team Handball, has been officially recognized and approved by the International Handball Federation. The administrative and controlling body for International Team Handball has certified SnapSports surfacing as meeting international and IHF standards.
Handball, a team sport formed at the end of the 19th century, pits two teams of seven players against each other, with the purpose of scoring in the opposing team’s goal. Handball games are played primarily in indoor sport facilities, on indoor sport surfacing. Formed in 1946, the International Handball Federation has been the organizing body of Championship Handball play since the end of World War II. The IHF is composed of approximately 795,000 teams and 19 million players worldwide.
