Footvolley

A two-a-side beach volleyball played with football (soccer) skills.

It has the summer sex appeal of beach volleyball combined with acrobatic soccer moves. It originated on the beaches of Rio De Janeiro and helped legendary Brazilian players like Romario and Ronaldinho hone their skills as youngsters.

Footvolley is played on a beach volleyball court where you use your feet, not your hands, and points are scored exactly the same as in volleyball. You can also use your head, chest, legs, and creativity.

At the our Beach Soccer Jam, you will get a chance to showcase your skill in this impressive new sport of Footvolley at Fiesta Island.

Please sign-up on line using the link above. Free of charge. Championship teams will win a prize from our sponsor and the bragging rights to be called the Kings of the Sand.
