Peteca is a Brazilian sport that I discovered in the 90’s. It was a lot of fun from the start but as I was already heavily involved in Footbag and Kick Volley I didn’t have time to
pursue it as much as I would have liked to.
I went to Brazil in April 2009 to film a tournament of the Brazilian League in Belo Horizonte. I also got introduced to the very competitive side of the game by some top players. Peteca is a great exercise, very cardio, but in general much easier to learn than my current sport: Kick Volley so it is much more accessible to a whole lot of people.
It can also be played non competitively just passing the giant shuttlecock around. This
recreational approach can touch an even broader spectrum of persons.
I can say that I really believe in Peteca as a valuable and complete sport so I will promote it as much as I can. That’s why peteca.net was created. On the site you can see videos, read the rules, it contains a condensed version as well as a complete version of these rules, you can also buy the Petecas in our online shop as well as other fine alternative sports products like Footbag, Takraw and Handsack.

In this blog I will express myself on my favorite subjects, Footbag and other sports, the environment, computers, politics and generally having fun in life.
