Game description

In the group program „summer Olympics“ a simple discipline to introduce is the distance throwing. The players can throw a tennis ball or a larger ball such as a football or basketball. If you do not have enough space available a heavier ball is recommended. Make a mark on the ground which is not allowed to stepped over when throwing. Each thrower has 3 throws. If a player steps over the throwing line the throw does not count.


The furthest throw is judged. You can either set up a points scale and award the relevant points or the player with the furthest throw wins
