What is Slaughterball ?
Around the northern parts on the island of Gotland, there is a territory
called Ire, Hangvar. In the beginning of July every year, this place becomes
a gathering point of the most hard-headed men alive. "-What does that mean
?", you might ask yourself. Here comes an overviewing explanation:
- Slaughterball was invented around 1985 and has been developed into
a complete World tournament activity.
- Each team consists of two licensed male players. ( Women are strictly
forbidden on the court. )
- Over a two meter high net, the teams strike their points by hitting
and kicking a specially designed ball.
- Slaughterball is mostly a very painful activity, so vast quantities
of beer is often consumed in order to withstand the strains.
