Dubai Sports Council have announced the addition of the hugely popular beach sport, FootVolley, to their list of events for the upcoming Beach Sports Week.
Organised in cooperation with AFC Sports Academy, the six-team FootVolley tournament will take place on Friday and Saturday, with matches scheduled from 7am to 9.30am. The event is open to both men and women, according to a press release.
Born on the beaches of Brazil in the 1960s, FootVolley is one of the most popular beach sports in the world. It is similar to Beach Volley, but without the use of arms and hands.
Players use their head, chest, thighs and feet instead to pass the ball over the net, or to keep the ball from hitting the ground. The sport demands excellent balance, ball control, endurance, focus and quick reflexes, and fans are treated to long rallies and spectacular points. The sport is exciting and addictive, and anybody can play.
