Chinese ball is a fast and furious game that helps children develop ball skills and hone their concentration skills. Play it on the playground, in the park in in the backyard, Chinese ball is fun no matter what the setting.
What you need:
- Netball or basketball
Number of players:
The players stand in a circle and are given the ball.
The players must throw the ball quickly across the circle with the aim to surprise another player and make them miss the catch.
If a player catches the ball, the neighbouring players must raise their arm closest to the player with the ball – and hold it there until the ball is passed to another player.
If a player fails to catch the ball, or fails to raise the correct arm when their neighbour catches the ball, they are out.
When there are only five players left they are considered the winners.
