What Is Boltból?

Boltból is an Icelandic sport that’s kind of like volleyball, soccer and gymnastics all rolled into one. Players use their feet, chests and heads to get a ball over a net and onto the other team’s side.

The Rules

The basic rules of boltból are simple. Two teams of up to 6 players each try to get an inflated ball over a high net and make it bounce twice on the other side. Teams can kick, head or chest the ball to their teammates before sending it over the net. Each team gets up to 3 touches to return the ball.

Scoring

When the other team fails to return the ball before it bounces twice, the team that hit it over scores a point. The first team to score 21 points wins the match. Matches are best 2 out of 3 games.

The Field

Boltból is played on a court similar to a volleyball court, but a bit smaller. The net is a bit lower too, about 7 to 8 feet high. Players can kick the ball off the net, as long as it goes over to the other side. Out of bounds lines are marked just like in volleyball.

If you’re looking for a fun game that combines skills from several sports, boltból might be perfect for you. The rules are simple to pick up but allow for creative shots and team strategies. Give it a try for some high-energy entertainment with friends or family!

The Origins and History of Boltból

Boltból originates from Hungary, with earliest mentions of the sport dating back to the 1700s. The name itself comes from the Hungarian words “bolt,” meaning ball, and “bol,” meaning to throw. ###

Originally, Boltból was played casually in villages, using a rag ball and no designated field or positions. Teams weren’t formally established and people of all ages and skill levels participated just for fun. In the early 1900s, Boltból gained popularity in schools and youth organizations. Teachers saw it as an opportunity to promote national pride in Hungarian culture and identity.

Standardization and Growth

In 1912, the first official rulebook was published, standardizing gameplay and equipment. A Boltból ball and playing field were established, as were positions and team sizes. The sport continued gaining mainstream popularity over the following decades.

The first national Boltból tournament was held in Budapest in 1925. In 1938, Boltból became an official sport of the Hungarian University and College Sports Federation. After World War II, Boltból was promoted as a source of national unity and identity within Hungary’s sphere of Soviet influence.

Today, Boltból remains most popular in Hungary, though it has gained some international interest as well. The Hungarian Boltból Association currently has over 150,000 members, making it the largest sports federation in the country. Boltból is commonly played in schools and recreational community leagues, as well as competitively at the highest levels. Its long, rich history has cemented Boltból as an integral part of Hungary’s cultural heritage.

  • The other team fails to return the boltból before it bounces twice
  • The other team hits the boltból out of bounds
  • The other team commits a fault by catching or carrying the boltból

Matches are best two out of three sets. The first team to 15 points with a margin of 2 points wins a set.

  • Hitting the boltból twice before it bounces
  • Reaching over the net
  • Hitting the net with any part of your body
  • Stepping into the opponent’s court

If you commit a fault, the other team gets a point and the serve. Multiple faults can result in lost points or even disqualification, so be careful when playing!
