Dave G does an acrobatic clearance while Dixon watches on - motionless

We're playing the official version of "Footvolley" in Tel Aviv.

Our half arsed attempt at normal volleyball on our France Tour 2013 will be a distance memory when we'll be allowed to use our feet in Beach Footvolley in Tel Aviv.

Footvolley was conceived by Octavio de Moraes in 1965 in Brazil. Footvolley is simply beach volleyball, but players have to use their feet and not hands

Check out the UK Footvolley websitePoints are awarded if the ball hits the ground in the opponents court, if the opponents commit a fault, or if they fail to return the ball over the net. Scoring is done using the rally point system (new volleyball rules). Match scoring is usually up to the event organizer's discretion. Generally speaking matches are one set to 18 points; or best of three sets to 15 points (with third set to 11 points). The court is usually 29.5 feet x 59 ft (old beach volleyball). The height of the net varies based on the competition. The Official International Rule for the net height set is 2.2 meters or 7 feet 2 inches for the men's competition. 

So, we now have time to tone up for the game against our hosts' college. Dixon has time to increase the growth of that tuft of hair on his chest, Dave will blend in, but even his vast amount of hair might cause a stir.
