Brazil sinks its teeth into mango-inspired ballgame

March 05, 2024

The game is now played with mango-shaped polyurethane balls, about 3 times smaller than a rugby ball, on a rectangular court on any surface. Each game can be played with up to three players, with a match lasting between 15 to 25 minutes. After two decades, manbol is making inroads in Brazil, with some 2,000 players in a nation of more than 200 million people. "It is an inclusive sport, which can be played by people of any age or social class. Manbol has everything it takes to grow," said Katia Lessa, president of the Rio Manbol federation, who dreams of the game becoming an Olympic sport one day.
