What is Fistball?

 

Fistball is similar to volleyball.  Players try to hit a ball over a net using their forearm or a closed fist.  This sport can be played outdoor and indoor.

 

Each team consists of five players, with players trying to play the ball across the net from one half of the field of play to the opponents' half – using only their arm or closed fist in a way in which the opponents cannot return it. After clearing the net, the ball may be contacted up to three times by the five players on each team – with a bounce being permissible before each contact, but no repeat hits by any individual player within the three attempts. Similar to volleyball, the three hits are ideally used to pass, set and spike the ball back into the opponents half, in that order.
