Fistball (Faustball) is a sport started in Germany, over 100 years ago. It is played all over the world. Take the game of volleyball add a bounce in between each hit and you have the start of the game of Fistball.
Like Soccer there is a World Cup of Fistball. The last Men’s Tournament was in Austria 2011, and the Women’s Tournament was in Germany 2014. The next Men’s World Cup tournament will be in Argentina 2015.
We practice on Thursday nights from the Thursday after Mothers Day to the end of August at 6:45 pm next to the parking lot. We have Men’s, Women’s, and Children’s teams. We play 3 tournaments during the summer. One in June, July and August against another German American club, S.S.C. in Flanders, NJ. We also have recently found another club in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Several members from SSC and Phoenix have gone up their in recent years to play.
What is nice about the game of Fistball, is each family member can have their own team with their own skill level, but still spend the day together as a family.
