This tournament is the third event of
KICK VOLLEY's history.
This sport is generally called Footbag Net and this is a new marketing or rebranding attempt initiated by Yves Archambault. I firmly believe that the name Footbag carries a good baggage of confusion at the phonetics level , it is often verbally confused with Football, as well as from its history.
The name Footbag has to be followed by another term to distinguish it properly. There is Footbag Net which is the same sport as KICK VOLLEY, Footbag freestyle, Footbag circle etc... These sports developed gradually since 1972 and the different additional terms got created along the way.
KICK VOLLEY is a much more descriptive term and therefore cannot be confused with the other forms constituting the larger Footbag family of names.

No lateness will be tolerated at this tournament, this is the pursuing of a new culture. The marked times are the hours at which the first serves have to be in the air. All first serves at this tournament will be at 10h00, Saturday March 24th on all courts. You're late, you're scratched automatically from that match.
All games have to be officiated by at least a head judge. All the scores of all the games have to be written at the appropriate place in order to be official. Players that do not have specific tasks or are not competing are required to officiate (head judge or line judge) when asked. We will need a head judge and 2 line judges for all the matches from the semi finals on.
No advertising for any competing sponsors will be tolerated either on shirts or any other visual support at any time during the event. This is a private event sponsored by Pro Kicker and Le Quartier Latin. Club and non profit organizations are welcome to display their colors.
There will be a contact penalty for abusive players. 4 contacts max allowed during the whole tournament, then red card.
