Footballtennis? What’s that?
Well it is simple: there are teames on each side of a net on a football pitch. The ball doesn’t go into the goal, but on the other side of the field. The team who can get the ball back looses the point.
Those skilled DFB players show you how it is played:
1/4 pitch with boards = 75 Euro (90 min)
Indoor Dom = 75 Euro (90 min)
