This Sport Is Ping Pong That You Play with Your Head and a Soccer Ball

This is headis, a sport played in Germany. Two people face off across a ping pong table, knocking a soccer ball back and forth between them. They can use only their heads to hit the ball.

The video embedded above shows a tournament played in Saarbrucken, Germany this year. I would guess that some of the players are using pseudonyms, unless "Lord Voldehead" and "Nosegrinder" are common given names in Germany.

The best players gradually eliminate the competition until a final champion prevails. Although the sport may sound silly, it clearly requires great dexterity and stamina.

I coach girls youth soccer for my daughter's team, and we play kickball and volleyball with only permissible soccer plays -- feet, head, thigh, etc. It's great for developing skills while playing a silly game. There's LOTS of scoring in both since it's so hard.
