FREESTYLE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As the name suggests freestyle footbag is a discipline where you play without limitations. Anywhere, any time. It does not matter how good you are, as long as you have a real freestyle footbag.

 

Freestyle can be enjoyed alone or with others, but typically it is played in circles of 2-5 persons. The point is to keep the bag in the air for as long as possible, may this be alone or in a group. You perform different kicks, stalls and tricks in a way that makes the game pleasant to watch. Like many other sports, footbag freestyle has an artistic as well as a technical side to it.

Through time freestyle has developed and today you can differ between two types of play: Old School and New School freestyle. In brief you could say that Old School freestyle is most about kicking and playing together, whereas New School freestyle is more individual, based on executing numerous difficult tricks and combinations. No matter what you prefer there is an undefined line between the two types of styles.

To obtain optimal control in freestyle you need to use a soft, almost “sloppy”, footbag. In other words: a freestyle footbag should have a diameter of 4-6 cm. and weigh approximately 25-45 g. Real freestyle bags are made out of thin and very soft materials. They only have little filling and are sewn with hidden seams. A freestyle footbag typically has been filled with plastic beads or sand. So basically a cool freestyle bag should be kickable but most importantly stall-able without rolling off your foot.

NET
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Net footbag is a very fast game that resembles both tennis and badminton, or is it beach volley? No matter what the similarities may be, there is one interesting difference – you play solely with your feet!

   

Net footbag is a very requiring sport and we recommend you have a little previous experience about footbag before entering this game. Net players use a hard footbag and play on a court with almost the same measures and net height as a double badminton court. Footbag net can be played as single and double, and the players compete in best out of three sets playing to 11 or 15 points. This discipline is inspired by the net game Sepak Takraw and has many similarities although the rules and number of players are a little different.

The rules in footbag net are roughly as follows: In singles you are allowed up to two contacts, and in doubles three contacts on each side of the net. In double a player may not have more than one contact/kick at the time, just like in beach volley. If the footbag has contact with other parts of your body than your feet, it is a upper body fault.

As opposed to freestyle footbags, a net footbag are hard and made from a thicker and stronger material called vinyl.
