Latin flavour to futsal fever gripping Tweed



TWEED youngsters got their first taste of futsal at a coaching clinic at the Salvation Ar- my Centre, Banora Point yesterday.

The coaching clinic was a fore-runner for a futsal competition to be held at the centre starting next Friday.

Run by Queensland Director and Australian women's coach, Brazillian Gui Costa, the event attracted large num- bers.

Futsal is a five-a-side indoor soccer first developed in 1850 in Uraguay as a way to play soccer in wet weather.

Further developed in Brazil, the game is now played in 80 countries around the world with a world cup held every for years.
