As sports go, there’s a lot you can do with a few players, a ball and some kind of net. But we have to admit, when the players mix it up with gear and guidelines, it can make watching it a lot more interesting. Bossaball does just that, but it adds another element — the whole game takes place on what amounts to a giant trampoline — meaning players end up bouncing and jumping all over the place in an effort to score points.

This new team sport involves jumping, flipping and kicking to volley a ball over a net. The ball has to land on the opponents side to score, but unlike in volleyball or soccer, any part of the body can be used. But, you can only use your hands once and your feet or head twice before another player has to touch the ball.

There is a bit of set up involved, but the creators say it take less than an hour to get ready for an all-day game. But we want to know what you think. Is this new mix of soccer, volleyball and gymnastics the next big thing? Weigh in by voting in the poll now!
