The BossaFarm is located in Estepona, a quaint little Spanish town situated in the area of Malaga and Marbella. It all started with the idea of setting up a training center in the rural area of Southern Spain, where the players could bivouac and practice all day long.
“The setting up of a bossaball development center crossed my mind for many years. We were in need of such a place in a healthy environment where we could train, during an extensive period. The realization of the BossaFarm fills me with pride and the players seem to love it so far. This health sports development center coincides with the ambitions of bossaball”, says Filip Eyckmans.
Moreover, rest periods between training sessions and intense days of practice are filled with healthy, nutritious and traditionally grown food provided by and cultivated at the same playground. That way, the BossaFarm becomes a healthy sports development centre.
The idea is to closely interweave the sporting and physical perspective with social and ecological aspects. A place where neo meets retro. The upside-down gardening is one example. This practice from New York has spread out to Estepona as well, and occurs in a rather creative way. Seven end-of-life trampolines have found a new destination, as they are now used as the skeleton for the vegetable boxes.
