Say hello to footgolf – level 2

24-11-2014 15:00

Footgolf first appeared in 2009, and it is becoming increasingly popular. It is a game with a standard-sized football which people kick towards an oversized hole.

The first ever Europa Cup footgolf tournament was held in Spain. A man from Amsterdam won. He hopes that the sport is going to be a professional one. This happened with darts. Its professional players are now traveling the world and making money.

Difficult words: increasingly (more and more), tournament (a series of contests), darts (an indoor game in which you throw small pointed missiles at a target).

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