Bossaball. Kicks, spikes, flips, and...trampolines.


Nothing bad's gonna happen here! Belgian Filip Eyckmans developed the concept for Bossaball about a decade ago when he was living in Spain and, I guess, jonesing to play all his favorite sports at the same time, and while rocking out. The circus of a hybrid you see before you is Eyckmans' combination of volleyball, soccer, gymnastics, and capoeira, all set to a background of groovin' world beats. It's Bossaball. Bossaball recruits 2 teams of 4 to 5 (highly coordinated, flexible, and daring) players to defend their sides of a giant inflatable "court" with a standard volleyball net running down the middle. Bossaball allows for both volleyball-style ball handles--one touch per person with hands or forearms, and a maximum of 5 to 6 touches per team--and soccer-style handles--a single or double touch per person with all the rest of the parts of your body that aren't your hands.
