The Tunisian handball League was established in 1953. In 1957, the Tunisian handball Federation was founded, and was later admitted into the International Handball Federation in 1962.
The Tunisian national handball team has participated in several handball world championships. In 2005 Tunisia finished in 4th place; becoming the second non-European team to reach the World Championship semi-finals after Egypt who was able to reach the semi-final match in 2001. The Tunisian national handball team won the African Cup for a record 10 times. The Tunisians won the 2018 African Cup in Gabon by defeating Egypt in the final match.
