The game was started in the 1930's by a gentleman in Uruguay, who wanted to create a version of indoor soccer for recreation in YMCA's. It was originally designed to play on a basketball court. This quick, fast paced game is typically played with 5 players on each side. (4 "outfielders" and 1 goalie). And because the game is played on a small size court, the ball is heavier than a typical soccer ball to generate a low bounce.

The Village of Palm Springs offers a slightly smaller futsal area to play on at Lakewood Gardens Park. You will find two futsal goals out there suitable for a 3v4 or 4v4 matchup. No lights are at the park so play is open everyday until sunset.
