Stand Wall Ball
Posted On: 2009-01-06
This game requires a soft rubber or tennis ball and a high smooth wall or very high board fence. Before starting the game one of the players is selected to be "'Thrower."
The players stand in front of, and at any distance chosen, from the wall. The Thrower throws the ball against the wall between two real or imaginary lines parallel to the ground. As he throws the ball, the Thrower calls the name or number of one of the players who must catch the ball either on the fly or first bounce. The others try to block him just as football players block each other from receiving a forward pass, but they are forbidden to touch the ball. When the player called fails to catch the ball the others scatter. He calls "Stand" when he picks up the ball. He takes aim and tries to hit a player. If he hits an individual they exchange places. If he fails he continues as Thrower.
