Leading the charge of extreme sports

This is a truly electrifying sport – a new game which allows players to tackle opponents by zapping them with stun guns.
Ultimate Tazer Ball (UTB) combines the skills of football with the adrenaline levels of an all-out riot, allowing players to zap their opponents with 300,000-volt stun guns to induce a muscle spasm which will make them drop the ball or trip over.
There have been no official games played, but the sport’s creators insist it is genuine and claim they are planning to form a league.
In an online video clip, one zapped player warns: “If you’re scared, don’t play.”
Another says: “It hurts, man, it doesn’t feel good.”
Only the player in possession may be zapped as teams compete to maneuver an over-sized foam ball into a net.
