Physical fitness comprises two related concepts: general fitness a state of health and well-being, and specific fitness a task-oriented definition based on the ability to perform specific aspects of sports or occupations. Physical fitness is generally achieved through correct nutrition, exercise, and enough rest. Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each (six out-court players and a goalkeeper) pass a ball using their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of two periods of 30 minutes, and the team that scores more goals wins. Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.
