The game started in Brazil and was ﬁrst created by Octavio de Moraes, 1965. The home town of Futevolei is Rio de Janeiro. Players would play on the beach using a football/soccer ball. Most players would be professional reHred football players. They would have an average of ﬁve each side, someHmes though they would be so good that people would play with two each side, which is sHll used today.
The rules from Futevolei are based on the original rules from football and volleyball. Futevolei is original volleyball without using your hands and not a volleyball but instead a football. Points are awarded if the ball hits the ground in the opponent’s court also team gets the point if the opponent doesn’t send the ball back. The oﬃcial internaHonal height for the net is 2.2 metres. The rally point system is how they score. FiMeen points are used for sets of three or sets of eighteen points.
Here is a clip from utube showing how they play in modern 7mes. h9p://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goNUQxlyk‐o In modern 7mes they have big compe77ons for groups of ﬁve to two to compete in. These days they use a football (what we call a soccer ball) and a 2.2 metre volleyball net. They can only kick or head the ball, to serve they put the ball on the far right corner (This is marked with the black X’s on the volleyball court)
We are going to play using the metal tennis nets and a soccer ball or bouncy ball it depends on how good you are once we start playing. You are going to be in groups of ﬁve. You will be able to use your hands only once to throw the ball up in the air so you can head it, this how we will be serving. You will be able to use any part of your body except your hands. If the ball touches the ground in the opponents half of the court or your opponent fails to return the ball including it hiPng the net you get the point. We will score like tennis scoring.
