* Has spread into the middle east and some parts of america.
* Fairly new sport, so it is still growing.
* Some other countries that play bossaball are Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Kuwait, Ecuador, South Africa and Saudi Arabia. *Played throughout the whole year * Played in rain or shine (but only when safe, e.g not during a storm). * The most recent of teams to become famous would be the Dutch bossa team, becoming the champions in the 2012 championships. * One of the more famous teams would be the Brazilian bossaball team, being the first to win a four-team tournament in 2008. * Other well noted teams are the Spanish and North Carolina State University teams. 1. The Court 2. 3-5 Players 3. The Ball * No recorded injuries
* Possibly since bossaball is a new sport
* From all of the saftey precautions put in, not much would happen, but it is possible people could break bones playing if they were careless.
* The Court is pretty safe. 4. Music * Modifications have mainly been made to make the court safer to play on.
* For example, all the springs are covered by huge inflateables, and the outside of the court had a 3m thick inflateable barrier to stop people falling out. * Music is a big thing in bossaball Example of Some Music * The music played is samba music * It is always played with music, and makes an atmosphere * Bossaball is a professional sport, in the fact that people are paid to do demonstrations and small competitions.
* The Brazilian and Spanish teams do demonstrations in many countries promoting the sport
* DJ's also get paid for their preformances at events * Has very little gender restrictions and differences.
* Both men and women can play without their play style being affected at all on professional levels.
* Mixed gender teams.
* Professional bossaball players are paid based on their performance and which level they play at amd not on their gender
* However, at non-professional levels, the net used in male play is higher than the net in female play. * Bossaball has a simple court design.
* The entire court is a base of inflatable padding. Players have to perform acrobatic stunts to hit the ball, and they could sustain serious injuries without the inflated court.
* The inflatable padding is divided into two sections, the scoring zone and the out-of-bounds zone.
* There are two trampolines
* The size of the courts vary in recreational play, and reflect the amount of players there are, but the dimensions shown in the diagram to the right are regulation size courts used in professional play. * Refereeing in Bossaball is simple.
* The “samba referee” makes calls whenever points are scored when the ball hits the trampoline or scoring zone, or when the ball goes out of bounds.
*They also serve as an MC (Master of Ceremonies).
* Use a whistle, a microphone, percussion instruments and a DJ set to help with their job.
* Sometimes, a referee isn’t even needed, just an audience and a DJ! * Bossaball is a highly simple game.
* It requires only an appropriate court and a ball.
* It is rare for people of any social ranking or any financial status to own a private Bossaball court. However, people can go and hire a court.
* Bossaball is a highly recreational sport where status doesn’t matter, only whether the player can pull off creative stunts to get the ball to the other side. * Bossaball is not divided into levels based on age, but rather on whether the players are professional or not.
* There are a few sub-levels of non-professional levels. These consist of non-professional males, non-professional females and younger players.
* Non-professional males have lower nets than professional players, females have lower nets, and younger players have the lowest. In a mixed gender match, the non-professional male net is used. Bibliography http://library.thinkquest.org/08aug/00586/Bossaball.html
