Competition Rules & Regulations

Welcome to the section of the Scottish Handball Association website which provides guidance in relation to competition regulatory matters. You can see information on our regulations by clicking the boxes below.

Scottish Handball Association is obliged to comply with the International Handball Federation Rules of The Game, which are applicable throughout the game. To reflect our own unique environment we have supplemented these with our own SHA Competition Regulations. We collectively refer to IHF Rules and the SHA Competition Regulations simply as the “Regulations”. 

All those within the Scottish Handball Association's jurisdiction are required to comply with the Regulations.
