Bosseln (Ball shooting)

Although in many ways similar to other sports such as bowling, boccia, skittles, etc., no other sport displays the same unique characteristics as boßeln: boßeln is a traditional East Frisian national sport whereby two teams of four players compete against each other.

The aim is to throw the balls as far as possible in as few throws as possible. The sport is played on normal streets. Boßeln is a recognised sport in which a career can be made – from district level to the top league.
