A Bossaball game is played between two teams of 4 or 5 players. The aim is for each team to ground the ball on the opponent’s field. The height of the net in between both fields can be adjusted for different levels such as professionals, intermediates, beginners or children. Players are not allowed to touch the net and always have to remain with at least one body part on their own side. A maximum of 5 touches is allowed per team (6 for recreational games). The ball can be played with two techniques:
Volleyball touch: playing the ball once with hands or forearms.
Soccer touch: every other part of the body not being the hands – double touch allowed (counts as 1 touch).
