New Sports and How They Compare with Traditional Sports

img

There are many sports to make in play betting Vulkan, both traditional and not so traditional. People invent new sports to have fun and compete at the same time.

Will new sports become popular?

There are some unusual sports in the world that many people don’t even know about. Let us have a look at what they are and what are their chances of success.

Chessboxing

This sport was created in 2003. Its author was a Dutchman Iepe Rubingh. Chessboxing is a mix between chess and boxing. First the players play a chess round, then a boxing round. The chess round has a maximum of 10 minutes per player, while the boxing round lasts three minutes. There are 11 such rounds.

Chessboxing is managed by the World Chess Organization (WCBO).

Bossaball

This is a ball game for two teams of 3 to 5 players. The game is played on a huge inflatable mat, which is divided by a volleyball net. There are special round indentations on either side of the net in which trampolines are placed. Participants in the game perform all sorts of somersaults in the air, kicking and striking the ball with their feet and hands.

The game is accompanied by incendiary music which makes it even more entertaining and dynamic. The matches are refereed by the so-called “samba referee”.

The sport originated in Spain but was invented in 2004 by Belgian player Philippe Eijkmans.

Jai Alai

Jai Alai is a mixture of badminton and handball. The aim of the game is to hurl a scoop-like racket at a wall standing in your opponent’s area. The opponent on the other hand has to catch the ball in the air or at the first bounce off the wall.

Although it isn’t actually a new sport, Jai Alai is considered to be the fastest sport in the world and has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records. Incredibly, the very hard ball used to play flies at a speed of 300 km/h.

The sport is very popular in Spain, and interest in it grows every year all over Europe.

Hurling

Hurling is a team sport of Celtic origin. Hurling is played with wooden clubs and a ball. The object of the game is to earn as many points as possible by scoring against your opponent. Although it is an ancient sport, hurling has never really been well know outside of a few countries but it may even become a discipline to make Vulkan bet on sports soon.

The game was brought to Ireland by the Celts, making it over 2,000 years old. The main event in the world of Hurling is the Hurling Championship of Ireland which has been held annually since 1887. There is actually a “European Hurling League” that is gaining in popularity.
