Not the kind of post you would expect from me huh? First time on Dtube.

Hello everyone!

I know i haven't properly introduced myself to the rest of the vloggers around here (and probably never will) since I am camera phobic, but I thought I should let you see a different aspect of my life.

And YES, this isn't another Steem related post from me :)

I love sports, and this is a small sample of my daily training with my partner / brother, while playing beach rackets.

In case you wonder, yeah, it is an official sport in this side of the world where I live and is actually pretty fascinating. So let me tell you how this goes...

Usually, when we participate in a tournament, there is a high speed camera (like the one used by the police) which measures the speed of the ball. It is triggered only when the speed of the ball is > 65 km/h

So at 65 km/h you get 1 point
At 67 km/h you get 1.1 points
At 70 kh/h you get 1.2 points and so on...

The higher the speed the more points you get. For every drop you get -3 points....

So you and your partner have 10 minutes to make the best possible score among dozens of participants. Yeah, you guessed that right, the guy opposite to you isn't your opponent but your teammate! We are a team...

Pretty simple rules...But trust me...it is way harder than it looks...

I apologize in advance if the quality of the video isn't good enough...

Oh...I am the guy in the black swimming trunks btw.

If you think this is interesting let me know and I can share with you all lots of videos, either from the championship or tournaments or from our training.

Have a great one people!

Cheers.

Haha that is a crazy sport :D Thanks for introducing this to me! I expected something different but I actually love it!

Peace!

Ha! Thanks mate!

You should see videos from the official tournaments. So intense you wouldn't believe. 10 minutes of this = like playing a full 90 minute football game.

Oh man yeah I believe that could be interesting (even if I can not imagine that right now lol) :D

Haha welcome to the vlog-o-verse my friend. That is nuts sport.

Hi there Zeke!!

It is beyond nuts actually. Promise that if people like it the future videos will be of better quality

Ah it’s all good! Just keep making videos and STEEM will be better for it. Certain blog things are just more immersive that way and we can up your game.

Nothing wrong with your reflexes mate.
Have done it more than often as well being at the beach.
But didn't know it is also a real sport with rules and points.

Hahaha. Yeah, it is a real sport.

Some of those balls are >90 km/h...and the distance we are practicing is more or less 6 meters. While in the tournaments we usually play at 8 meters (following the rules) so it becomes easier

You two are top athletes. This is a great video of you both 🤩👍. I know this is very difficult.

Thank you @suntree!!
