i agree with vorvick, I call it footbag.

and i call footbag freestyle footbag freestyle to make the distinction between it and footbag over a net.

kick volley is a decently descriptive name.

Not sure how it caught on in the tennis world but I've heard "volley" mistakenly used for "ralley" during my teaching years. Not just a few times, but from many rec. players in a half dozen states. It still implies hitting back and forth over the net so there isn't a ton of confusion esp. in footbag since you really are volleying...but in tennis it stands out more.

I think the footbag net is more of a ball than a bag. The ball sports like tennis, baseball, basketball, football they are all various weights, sizes, shapes materials...so I think a leather 32 packed with pellets is more of a ball. The freestyle bag is a softer cloth llike floppy bag.

Too bad volleyball is taken...

I like kick volley but i still go back and forth saying net or footbag net.
