How To Play Gaga Ball

Materials Needed

1-3 gatorskin dodgeballs

This is a wildly popular indoor exhausting game.

The game begins with all participants touching a wall. The dodge balls are thrown up in the air and play begins. The object is to not get out.

You get out if one of the following happens:
1. The dodge ball touches you anywhere below your knees (shins, feet, etc).
2. Any part of your body touches the ground other than your hands or feet.
3. You pick up the dodge ball (you must bat it with your hands).

Players roll the dodge ball on the ground in front of them and try to hit it into other player?s feet. Hands can be used to block the ball.

Davey, you bend over and hit the ball. I like to ball my hand into a fist and hit it like that for extra speed and force.

How do you roll the ball if you can't pick it up?

This is an Israeli game and it's really just every-person-for-themselves dodgeball. This description is missing an important rule! Once a player touches the ball, they can't touch it again until the ball touches another person or a wall. It's usually played in a confined space, like a fenced-in circle or pit designed specifically for the game so that players can use the wall and nt get too far spread out from each other.

TO answer how to get back in, If we wanted to keep the game going, we'd just yell JAIL BREAK and everyone is back in.

This is one of those games that can just go on forever

Thanks for the game, just tried it at our youth group. Our group of 20ish isn't that competitive, and if you need to burn up some time at a session, just play----if you get hit, sit down on the spot, and you get back in by catching a ball (not retrieving a rolling ball)

@Dia squad, a person doesn't get back into the game (as its traditionally played). It's an elimination game. Last person standing wins.
