As Australians, we tend to be very traditional sportspeople. Heck, we are world famous for our innate ability to be brilliant at all things sport, but slowly, and surely we are seeing a rise of niche sports - something our USA friends have been doing for some years.
Enter Rebound Volleyball (aka Wallyball). Just like it's forefathers Dodgeball, Kickball, and Flag Gridiron it reicks of North America, but heck they know how to have fun, dont't they?!
Here are 4 reasons why this sport is going to rock your world!
1. It's great for beginners, or people that lovey Volleyball, but suck at it. It takes all of the principals of volleyball, and affords players to make mistakes like hitting the ball sideways. Instead of that ball headed for the ocean, and your opposition rolling their eyes (cos you suck), the ball is played off the wall, and created a great diversion, and a quick eye to return.
2. You can always get courts! Rebound Volleyball is played on a squash court which is an added bonus given most of those spaces are left vacant in the important hours. It's a quick moving, high intensity sport, which will test your quick eye, and quick arm.
3. Great fitness, duh! Because the sport is quick, and never stops, there is less stoppage, and a lot more running around like a chicken with no head. It's a really wild chase, and you are left with the sweaty marks to prove it.
4. You only need 4 on the court. Which is great, because trying to convnce 3 of your friends to play is way easier than getting 5 of them onboard. Heck you could ask one friend, your Mum and your Dog*, and you have a team!
If you think this sounds like you, then make sure you join here so you can say "you played Rebound Volleyball, before it was cool".
*Doggy's dont have opposable thumbs, so do not make great team mates.Learn More
