How it Works

Have two teams of 3-5 players on opposite sides of the playing surface. First player must throw/kick/strike the object across the centre line into the other teams half of the surface. Once completed, that player must run to the other side of the playing surface. The other team must return the object back. Idea is to keep the object travelling back and forth for as long as possible. Can be used with tennis, badminton, footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, baseballs, rugby balls etc.
