Footbag

Footbag is a sport played with a small leather ball (in the sport called a bag). The sport was invented in 1972 in the USA and is also known as Hacky Sack. Since 1980 there are world championships held every year and since 1999 there are European championships held also every year. The sport has developed radically

since it came to Europe in the end of 1990s. Today it is an extremely technical and artistic discipline. The best competitors are from Czech Republic, Finland, Poland, USA and Canada. In 2014, the sport was professionally played in 48 states of the world.

Footbag Doubles

Footbag Doubles Freestyle (also called Open Doubles Freestyle) is one of the main disciplines in the sport of footbag. Competitors perform a 3 minutes long routine to music of their choice. The main judged elements are difficulty, variety and execution of performed tricks, choreography and originality.

Martin Sladek and Tomas Tucek have been the most successful competitors for the last years and innovators of Footbag Doubles Freestyle. They have invented dozens of new tricks which they routinely perform on stage. Most of these tricks have never been performed before.

Performance

UniqueTrio performances are an absolutely unique shows. The connection of footbag with juggling means many possibilities and great variety. A perfomance usually includes synchronizations (2 players performing the same movements), hooping (playing footbag with 1 bag by setting/throwing a bag under the playmate's leg), hard moves, performing with props (keys, soccer ball etc.). Please watch the „Video gallery“ section for a sample! Our performances put emphasis on technical skills which we combine using artistic elements.
