Team Handball at the Olympics

Handball was first introduced at the Olympic Games at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, in a competition for men only, and was played outdoors on a grass surface. The sport was dropped from the program after this single appearance, and not played again at the Olympics until 1972. The women's handball competition was added to the program at the 1976 Summer Games.
