Say hello to footgolf – level 1

24-11-2014 15:00

This news is about a sport. It is a new sport. It is becoming more and more popular. It is footgolf. You play it with a normal football. You must kick it towards a big hole.

The first footgolf tournament was organised in Spain. A man from Amsterdam won. He hopes that the sport will become professional.

Difficult words: hole (space in the ground), tournament (an event when people do an activity or sport and try to win), professional (the sport is popular and players make money when they play it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Have you tried this sport?
