A Bossaball game is played between two teams of each 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, men, women 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 lower arms.
- Soccer touch: double touch allowed (counts as 1 touch).
Points can be made either by scoring or by an opponent’s fault.
The outer safety zone is out.
The safety border around the trampolines is a free zone. On this “bossawall” the ball may bounce or roll. When the ball lays still on the bossawall, the point goes to the opponent’s team.
Scoring with volley touch:
1 point: when the ball hits the opponents playing area.
3 points: when the ball is played directly in the opponent’s trampoline area.
Scoring with soccer touch:
3 points: when the ball hits the opponents playing area.
5 points: when the ball is played directly in the opponent’s trampoline area.
