Since the beaches in Rio are usually crowded, and there isn't enough space to play football—the favourite game of the Brazilians, they've had to be a little creative and find an alternative way to play it. That's how the futevolei was born. It's played on a volleyball court, and the rules are almost the same. With one exception—you're not allowed to touch the ball with your hands. You have to beat the ball with all the other parts of your body depending on y​our skills and creativity. You will be surprised how talented the locals are. So if you're not in the mood to play you can just watch how the fit and tanned Cariocas masterly deal with the ball.
