Bossaball Rules of Play

Bossa means with 'style or flair' in the Portuguese language which implies its inspiration and association with the pulsation and movement of Bossa Nova music.

RULES OF BOSSABALL: Basically take the cool moves from soccer, add in a little gymnastics, and mix it all up over a net on a huge inflatable trampoline.

Playing Bossaball rules - a relatively new exciting game - seems to have combined the best actions from many of its rival extreme sports.

The zany sport was developed around 2004 by the Belgian Filip Eyckmans while he was living in Spain.

You use the kicking moves similar to soccer football, the acrobatics used in gymnastics, and a portion of Brazilian martial arts 'capoeira'.

The awareness of bossaball, as an international activity for competitors, is growing steadily and nowhere more noticeable than in sunny beach resort countries like Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Ecuador, Kuwait, Egypt, and bouncing along nicely in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Tournaments are sometimes held inside covered stadiums during the winter in countries such as Switzerland and Austria but you do need an inflatable court with trampolines fixed on each side of the net to play bossaball rules.

This unique grown-ups sporting version with rules and regulations of trampolining allows the players to bounce incredibly high in the air so they can spike the ball to their opponent's court area.
