Imagine yourself learning at the beautiful Ipanema Beach the sport that every local in Rio de Janeiro plays? That is your chance!
Footvolley was created in 1965 at Copacabana Beach, mainly due that football was banned on the beach, but volleyball courts were open. So why not combine both sports? It just became THE sport for the locals!
In recent years, professional football players have taken up footvolley in both promotional events and celebrity matches. Some notable Brazilian Footballers who have played (or still play) footvolley are Romário, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, beyond others. It is very common to walk at Ipanema Beach and suddenly you watch former football idols chilling around and having a footvolley match. That is what makes it so special!
