Game description

For this water relay race, all participants are divided into two equal teams. Each team then receives a table tennis ball, a measuring- and drinking cup. Next, the teams have to line up in a 3m distance from each other, right down to the water’s edge. Now, every team throws its ball into the water. The cup has to be placed at the far end of the pool. Now, the first kid jumps into the water with a sponge in her hand. Next, the player collects the ball and swims over to the cup and puts the table tennis ball in it. Then he heads back again, soaking the sponge thoroughly. Back to his team, the player climbs out of the water and wrings his sponge into the measuring cup. Only now can he pass on the sponge to the next player. He quickly jumps into the water, collects the ball on the other side and throws it back into the water. Then he repeats the same sequence like the kid before him: Swim back, soaks the sponge, climbs out of the water, wrings the sponge in the measuring cup. This is repeated until all kids had a go or the measuring cup is full. In both cases, this would be the winning team.


Speed. As soon as the measuring cup is full, the tea automatically wins.
