The inaugural edition of the Premier Handball League commences on June 8 for a month full of one-of-a-kind, fast-paced action. The brainchild of Bluesport Entertainment, the franchise-based league will hope to revolutionize the summer sport in India in ways the Pro Kabaddi League or the Prime Volleyball League did for the respective sports.

In the inaugural edition of the PHL, there will be six teams vying for the top honors, namely the Rajasthan Patriots, Garvit Gujarat, Golden Eagles Uttar Pradesh, Delhi Panzers, Telugu Talons, and Maharashtra Ironmen.

Things to know about the sport
