34th World Footbag Championships awarded to Montreal

We just received great news today: The 34th World Footbag Championships is gonna be in Montreal from July 27th to August 3rd 2013. Thanks to Luka Weyler-Lavallée for his relentless efforts to secure the facilities we will have a great gym to play in. The Cegep du Vieux-Montreal gyms have seen the local play for 26 years and we had over 15 tournaments in there already. Here's a video that was taken in that same gym:

New self supporting Footbag Mini Net set

Footbag net is a pretty difficult sport to learn for most people. The fast ball, high net and big court are all hurdles for beginners to come to grips with. When we have spectators around watching a game I often recognize the ''no way I can ever do that thing'' look on their faces although they seem to appreciate the action.

The reaction of bystanders is quite different when they see us playing on the Mini Net. As the court is much smaller, the ball slower and the net much lower their attitude is reading more like: ''Hum! It wouldn't take me long to beat this guy at this game'' if they ever kicked hacky sack or even soccer balls.

Pro Kicker is offering a few models of Mini Nets for all occasions and the last one sports a self supporting structure that is very useful for indoor settings or to set up anywhere on pavement or such environments.

Here's a picture of the latest Pro Kicker Mini Net creation
