What is the object of any game of handball?

Although there are many more associated benefits and even more important intrinsic "objects", the Formal object of any sport is to win ... and to do so in a fair, sportsman-like manner. However, in relation to any "handball" games: As hand and ball games vary, and have varied, so enormously from place to place and from time to time even over mere decades, it would be hard to generalize specifics on how the 'winning' of "any game of handball" is accomplished. For instance, although there is now an "Olympic handball" game (which was formerly called, "European handball" by many nations), and which is a team game, there have long-existed individual handball games of various kinds around the world. Perhaps among the most enduring and formal, Western "handball" games are the versions which are played in singles or doubles off walls, similar to squash, but without racquets. There are 3-walled, one-walled and 4-walled versions. Prime competitions have been played in Ireland, Australia and America of this type of handball game for well over 100 years. In addition, there are less formal "handball" games - mainly played by youth and children. Regardless of the mode, Most of these handball games/sports comprise the striking of a ball with the hand and are competed on an indiviual basis. So, more specific to the question: The object is to cause the opponent to miss a ball or mess up a shot of his own - with the ultimate object of winning points or 'getting him out', depending on the specific game. The object of the team game of 'handball' is to out-score the other side by scoring more goals.
