How To Play Chairball

Set up your hall like a foosball table:

With chairs as the black and white team. The 'black' chairs face to the right goal and the 'white' chairs face to the left goal. The goal could be a bucket, 2 chairs or maybe someone standing on a chair.

The 2 teams have to sit in the chairs and hit the ball (or balloon) with their hands and try to get a goal at their end.

Pretty sure that's all!

Materials Needed

Beach ball or balloons

Did this game last week, and our students loved it! We also taped glow sticks to a ball and turned out the lights. Only had one student get hit in the face! Great idea!

We did a really similar game with boundaries made from trestle tables lying on their side. As we had a smallish group they played with indoor unihockey sticks and a small rubber ball - great fun!!!
