Football tennis, also called foretelling is a game played with a rectangular ball usually covered with rubber. It’s a fast-paced ball game which is played indoor or out on a specially court divided by a high and low net, with two teams always involved. The football is normally played with the use of a football, which is the smaller version of a tennis racket. However, some versions of the game require using a regulation size soccer ball.
There are three phases to a football tennis match, attack, defence and counter attack. Attack is the fastest phase of play and starts immediately after the ball is whipped in from the opponents goal. The aim is to take the lead by scores before the other team has a chance to reply. Counter attacks are initiated when the other team has control of the ball. They attempt to equal or surpass the score you have set with the first offensive action of their team.
A football tennis game is normally played in one of three ways; throw-in, direct free kick or corner kick. A throw-in is where the player receives the ball, holds it up, makes a kick of it and then return it to the playing field. It requires two hands, as the rest of the action relies on a spin of the ball. A free kick is when the player receives the ball near the side wall, with his feet under the kick-off wall and makes a ground kick of the ball. Corner kicks are made when the ball is delivered toward the side wall in close proximity of the goalkeeper, either through a throw or a corner kick.
To make a throw-in, the player holding the ball must flick it over from one hand to another of the players immediately in front of him. It cannot be done when the ball is in play by another team; only when there are no other players in front of him. Another way to make a throw-in is to pass the ball between the two players who are next to him, either with the foot or a hand. Then, the player who received the ball from the first player who has it should run to the side of the net and kick the ball back to the second player. The two players in front of him need to pressurize the ball with their feet and use their hands in an effort to return it to the other player who will receive it.
Football tennis was created in France, as the name implies, and since then
it has become one of the most popular sports around the world. It can easily be played at any age; even children can play this sport. This sport is divided into teams, for each having three players on the field. Each team playing in the football tennis sport needs to be synchronized, meaning that all their movements should be exactly the same. This is to ensure that the team is not distracted from concentrating on the sport itself.
In countries where the weather does not permit playing ball games outside, the only option left is to play it indoors. This game is played inside in an artificial turf. This turf can be bought from anywhere between six hundred and twenty thousand CZars or about six hundred Euros. The cost varies greatly, depending on which turf is used.
The first ever international football tennis tournament was held in Czech Republic during the year 1992. The first round was played on the streets in front of the Olympic Stadium, the old national stadium. The winner of the tournament was Germany, with Poland winning their semi-final match. Five other countries were competing for the title. Four years later, the same countries faced off in the quarter finals once again, this time in the Olympic Stadium.
If you wish to practice your skills, the best place to do that is inside your house or your playing area. If you want to carry a bag, go for the bag with padded shoulder straps. Either way, you should always be aware of the rules and behave accordingly. Always remember that football training comprises a lot of sprinting and bouncing.
