Game description

Before the actual game can begin, you need to mark a start and finishing line and divide the group into two teams. Half of the teams are at the start, the other half at the finishing line. The first runner receives two rackets and a tennis ball. Next, he jams the tennis ball between the two rackets and gets the ball as quickly as possible to the finishing line. As soon as he is there, he passes the rackets and the ball on to the next player. If he loses the ball, he has to return to the start and begin all over again. This playful competition promotes skills and coordination.


A possible alternative is that the competitors start in pairs, and each runner must hold a racket. In this case, the challenge is the good cooperation between the two runners.


The winner is the team that has finished the relay first.
