Great for all Ages!
Junkyard Symphony has created the coolest new sport.
Take some elelments from basketball, handball, lacrosse, and the Gong Show, then add a drumkit, a whole team of players
and what you get is "Rhythm Ball". Four people play on the court at a time, but all the rest still play in the game from the sidelines, then they
rotate. It's so much fun you can't not try this new sport.|
Duration: (60 min. Recommended max 50 players)
On each side of the court are two gongs with a basket.
Two players stand on each side of the court, and a drummer on the sidelines keeps the beat on a junk drum kit.The rest of the two teams also
stand on the sidelines. The objectof the game is for the two teams to rebound the rhythmball off the gong and into the basket on the opposite side of the court, but there is a catch. The rhythmball must
hit the gong on beat 1 of a 4 or 6 beat cycle to get full points. The ball must also be passed every beat one for the play to continue.
The ball can be passed from hand to hand as long as the ball arcs above the head. It can be bounced off the ground from one hand to another,
or passed behind the back. The rhtyhmball can be also be passed to the second teamate or any teamate on the sidelines, but again the rhtymball
can only be passed on beat one. Off beat passes allows the other team to take posession of the rhythmball.
The oppostion of course tries to snatch the ball away. One good thing is that you know when the ball is going
to be passed. That's the basics. Give it try. It's lots of fun.
