Futsal was developed to meet the needs of players who didn’t have space to play soccer. The rules are similar to soccer but the game is played indoors and uses smaller balls (usually size 4 soccer balls) that are usually heavier and have less bounce. There are two teams with five aside verses 11 in outdoor soccer, and games are played in two halves each 20 minutes long. At Ryde there is a variant of Futsal played where the games are played in 2 x 15 minute halves.
Futsal is a great way to stay in shape and enhance your agility. It’s a fantastic cardiovascular workout that helps improve coordination and reflexes.
