Updated: Feb 16

The United States Fistball Association is proud to announce the launch of their new Women’s Fistball Program, functioning as both a competitive national team, and athlete development program.

USFA is seeking athletes to learn Fistball, and try out for this year’s Women’s National team, who will compete in the 2021 Women’s World Championships in Switzerland, July 13-17.

What is Fistball?

Fistball is a net sport, similar to volleyball and tennis. Two teams of 5 players play on opposite sides of a large grass court. The court is divided in half by a small net, lower than a volleyball net.

The goal is to hit the ball over the net into the opponent’s half so it cannot be returned. The ball can only be hit with one arm or a closed fist, but the ball may bounce once before each contact, as in tennis. 3 arm/fist contacts & 3 bounces are allowed to return the ball over the net.
