Unexpected benefits from top 8 recreational sports (Part 3)

6. Volleyball

Volleyball is probably the most energy-intensive sport on this list, but because it is often played on the beach in swimsuits, it has earned a special place on the list of sports.

Playing volleyball requires you to perform many typical poses such as jumping, squatting, moving Quick and turn around to catch the ball. This course will help you improve your hand-eye coordination, and your hands and feet will be more flexible.

Volleyball also helps you focus, strengthen social relationships, build muscle, and burn 585 calories after 45 minutes. In addition, according to a 2007 study by The Activities, Adaptation and Aging Journal, “volleyball in the chair” also has a positive effect on the lives of older people.

In a Roller derby match, two rollerblading players, called “jammer” (goalscorers) of the two teams will have to wriggle to avoid a series of blockers (aka defensive players) find a way chasing them.

Bossaball – one of the weirdest sport in the world

Air-cushion volleyball (also known as Bossaball) comes from Spain and is currently developing quite strongly in Europe as well as South American countries.

Although in some countries, Bossaball is still strange to many people, but it has received the attention of many people. Reportedly, Bossaball was invented by Filip Eyckmans, a Belgian living in Spain. In 2004, Bossaball received a great response in Belgium and the Netherlands before becoming an indispensable spiritual dish on the beaches in Spain. Currently, Bossaball has appeared in many European countries and South American countries. In addition, around the world, volleyball professionals have also formed the World Cup Bossaball tournament which attracts many countries to attend.

Bossaball’s game field is completely designed with air pads so that the athletes can jump and jump easily. In each part of the yard is also placed a trampoline with springs close to the net to help the attacker to finish. In Bossaball volleyball, each team has from 4 to 5 people, in which the owner is always on the trampoline to perform the finishing phase. When playing this volleyball game, you will use legs, arms and the stage is a bit of a carpet, so it is quite difficult to move.

To be able to play well, everyone has to focus on many skills, from volleyball, football to gymnastics or martial arts. The basic rules are based on volleyball rules, but each Bossaball team has 5 touches to hold the ball. More nicely, each player can get two consecutive touches of the ball if contacting the ball with different body parts. The attacker is likened to a sports artist because he possesses a lot of skills and height sensitivity to spring the spring onto the net to catch the ball of his teammate.

The highlight of Bossaball is that the player must dance continuously during the competition, so the energy consumption is huge. Besides, the permission to finish the ball with many parts of the body has helped players feel interested in this type of fun. In addition, with the yard being air mats, the athletes will feel safer when performing movements without fear of injuries.
