Estérel Futnet Cup

Discover with us the Futnet also called Tennis Ball.

What is Futnet?

The discipline

Two teams of 1 to 3 players play against each other, passing a football over a net with their feet. This sport can be played anywhere. Simple to understand, it combines flexibility, technique and agility. It is also a spectacular sport with acrobatic returns, spins, backflips and other impressive passes.

Its history

This sport was brought to Europe by Marco Polo, who is said to have brought it back from Malaysia or Indonesia. It was first introduced by the young footballers of Slavia Prague, who kicked the ball over a rope, replaced by a net. Then the first rules were created in 1940 and appeared in France in 1943. Finally, the creation of the FFDAF (Fédération de Futnet et des Disciplines Associées France) allowed the creation of associations which professionalized the players.
