Headis is a new high intensity sport combining the skills of Football and Table Tennis.
Headis is a mix of table tennis and football. The rules are similar to table tennis except that players ‘head’ the ball rather than use a bat. It is played on a solid table tennis table with a stable metal net and a special 50 cm round soft rubber ball weighing no more than 100 grams.
It is a sport that has rapidly become popular in Europe and Asia and continues to grow. It has now launched in Australia, with Headis Sports Australia established as Australia’s first Headis Sport Organisation.
