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 #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.
