What is bossaball?

Bossaball is a spectacular, dynamic and new sport which combines the best of football, volleyball and athletics on an inflatable court with trampolines. Bossaball is more than a sport. The word “bossaball” is derived from the Brazilian music style Bossanova, as music is an important element of playing bossaball.
A team consists of  four or five players. The main objective is to score the ball on the other team’s side. The ball can be passed around a maximum of five times before playing it over the net. The techniques which are used are especially important. Players make flips and other spectacular moves. A football technique scores more points than volleyball techniques.
