Game description

This game can be organised with very little effort. Whether it is a camp Olympics or at the birthday party, this game is always popular. Simply mark a starting line with a rope, a rod or any other well visible object. One by one each player comes to the starting line and receives a tennis ball. The objective is to throw the ball as far as possible. The team leader measures the distance of each kid and writes it down. Another option would be to give each kid several attempts, or you play several rounds and determine an overall winner at the end. Tips: Because measuring the distance of each ball after each throw is disruptive to the flow of the game, all balls should be numbered, which you can to with a not water soluble pen. And of course, each kid receives the matching number. Then you measure it all at the end.


The winner is the player who throws the ball the farthest. If you play, several rounds determine an overall winner at the end.
