Dubai Sports Council announce addition of FootVolley tournament to Beach Sports Week
Born on the beaches of Brazil in the 1960s, FootVolley is one of the most popular beach sports in the world. It is similar to Beach Volley, but without the use of arms and hands. Players use their head, chest, thighs and feet instead to pass the ball over the next, or to keep the ball from hitting the ground. The sport demands excellent balance, ball control, endurance, focus and quick reflexes, and fans are treated to long rallies and spectacular points. The sport is exciting and addictive, and anybody can play.
The AirBadminton Tournament, meanwhile, will take place on July 24th, 29th, 30th and 31st, with a total of 35 matches being played across five categories – Singles and Doubles for Men and Women, and Mixed Doubles – with draws of eight in each category.
The tournament, being organised by Dubai Sports Council and UAE Badminton Committee, is open to all players, badminton clubs and academies registered in the UAE. Players interested in taking part, can register using the following link:
