Early in February, the International Fistball Association (IFA) officially approved the United States to host the First Pan American Fistball Games this coming summer.   The games will feature both men’s and women’s championships featuring teams from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and the United States.  The games will consist of both the Pan American Championship (a competition of national teams), as well as the Pan American Cup (a competition of individual club teams).  The official international competition will take place at the Swim and Sport Club (SSC) in Flanders, New Jersey on August 27th-30th.  Set back off the beaten path with mature trees, a natural spring fed creek, and a beautiful outdoor swimming area, the Swim and Sport Club in Flanders is the ideal place for the Pan Am Fistball Games.  The SSC is located just one hour West of all of the famous sites tourists love on Manhattan Island in New York.  Prior to the Pan-Am Games there will be a “warm-up” international tournament will be hosted by the Phoenix Sports Club in Feasterville, Pennsylvania on August 22nd & 23rd.  This club also offers a rural setting in a beautiful and charming area of Bucks County PA. Admittance is free and the public is welcome to preview the exciting competitions.

For those unfamiliar with the sport of fistball, please refer to this quick video explaining the basic rules of the game.  The dynamic sport of fistball requires great speed, agility precision, and power making it a premier spectator sport that must be seen to be believed.  Much like Olympians, the world class athletes that will compete in these games have dedicated all of their time to practicing, training, and learning the fine nuances of the sport and in most countries it’s done with little to no funding.  They truly play the sport of fistball for the love of the game.  Come see these athletes put their passion on display!  With interactive areas for kids and adults interested in trying their hand at the sport, access to international players for autographs and photos, and plenty of great food and drink available, the Swim and Sport Club in Flanders, New Jersey will be the place to be August 27th-30th of 2015.

We will attempt a very basic live stream of the games through the Ustream.tv website. A link for the live stream will be posted on our Pan American Fistball Games event page on Facebook once we have it working. We have not used this before, so we are hoping we can get the live stream working. We will be using a single web camera that does not allow us to zoom, so unfortunately, there won’t be any closeups or announcers. Most likely just raw footage of the game taking place on the main playing field.
