Beach handball is played in two sets of 10 minutes each. For each goal, the team receives points depending on how the goal was scored. Teams can get one or two points and if they win a set they get 1 match point. Every set needs a winner and so it can be decided a golden goal. If there is a tie after two sets, the match will be decided by a shootout.
