    The game takes place in two periods of 45 minutes added by the referee.When a team has more goals than the opposite they win. A goal is that the ball must pass between the goal posts under the crossbar and beyond the goal line completely.
    A game begins with a kick from the center circle of the field, conducted by a team player who has touched him out. This is decided by the toss of a coin. Every time a goal is scored, the game continues from the inner circle, brings the team that has received. When you make a throw from center, teams must be each in their own half until they put the ball in play. I'll put some key things to know play the game: the ball out of bounds when it passes completely .- one of the lines: the band or target, either by land or air, or the game has been stopped by the coutch.

  6. TENIS

    tennis is an individual sport but can also play doubles. It is with a ball and a racket ball passes over a network that is located in the middle of the track. There are many types of strokes, my favorite stroke is right. My favorite player is called Rafalel Nadal has won 5 times the Monte Carlo Open. There are several types of surfaces: grass, clay, and cement. I particularly like the sport because it is a sport in which the points are played very hard and I'll spend a great time playing so I encourage them to practice!
