Game description

Each player receives a ping pong ball and a cup. Next, he places the up about 1-2m in front of him. The objective now is to bounce the ball between himself and the cup once on the floor and hopefully the ball ends up in the cup. If you play this game as a competition, each player receives an equal number of balls. With this game, it’s not as much about winning but about having fun.


There are several possibilities for a competition. For example, after each hit the participants have to take the ball out of the cup or try to get more balls into it. The latter is generally speaking more difficult as the table tennis balls will bounce off each other, jumping out of the cup again. And of course, those balls are not counted.


The winner is the player or team which has all balls in his cup first or who completes the task first.
