There's a much loved sport in Ecuador called Ecuavoley. It differs from the European volleyball. It's played 3 against 3, the setter the flyer and the server. Games consist of two sets of 15 points. If both teams agree, they can alternatively play two sets of 12 points with the option of a third tie-breaking set. They play it literally everywhere, from cities to tiny villages, from backyards to even rooftops. It's very popular all over the country and generates a very good atmosphere both among the viewers and the players.
