Hackysack.nl was established in the beginning of 2017. The game is already known for many years by different cultures, but yet is not very popular here. We are HERE to change it!

With a group of friends who are proficient in this game, we are trying to build a hackysack community and make it a sport, to official sport in the Netherlands just like football or basketball.

In many countries, hackysack is also known as footbag, but hackysack is a bit different and more fun than footbag and it can be played by anyone in any place. It is also a huge mixture of martial arts, athletics, sprinting, dancing, football, focus, and meditation.

It is a great team sport where you socialize with others while getting a workout that you need.

So you stay fit! Have fun! Get rid of bad energy and meet new people!
