Avento is a fast-paced team sport
. The central object of the game is a ball
(although sometimes multiple balls can be used). The field
on which it is played is not flat, but can contain small hills/walls/tunnels. The most important rule
is that no player may have continuous contact with the ball for over a second. (Bouncing the ball between hands is allowed.) Points
are scored by throwing/kicking the ball through a hole in the wall at the opposite side of the field.
During a game of Avento, I managed to shake off my direct opponent in one of the tunnels, after which I managed to throw the ball through the scoring holes.
