10 Weird Sports From Around The World

Weird Sport #5. Another Use For Those Fists Of Steel

Despite not being well-renowned in the media, fistball is an old sport that’s practiced all over the world. Like tennis and volleyball, the purpose of the sport is to hit the ball with your fist or arm and place it in the opponent’s half where they won’t get to it. After passing the net, the ball may be contacted up to three times (bounces are allowed) by the five players on each team.

The sport is played indoors and outdoors and is featured in The World Games.

Weird Sport #6. Taking Underwater Sports To The Next Level

Octopush (also known as underwater hockey) is a non-contact sport where two teams compete to maneuver a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool and into “goals”. Just like hockey but underwater, the game has actually become popular in countries like theUK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

Weird Sport #7. Reinventing A Childhood Sport

Even though it’s not entirely unusual, the fact that there is a kickball league is fun, yet weird. The popular playground game has now become a competitive sport with the creation of the World Adult Kickball Association.

In the same idea as chess boxing, with some of my friends we invented, years ago, the baby slap. It s kinda babyfoot game (normal rules) but u can slap the opponent that would concentrate too much on the ball (and it does balances teams!!)
hehe

Oh btw i think u missed the Sepak Takraw (Kick Volleyball) wich is very popular in south east of asia.
