A nice game for a beach party, and outdoor party or even indoors if you have a large enough room. Good for a range of ages.

GET SET

You need a tennis ball or soft ball for this game, so it can be caught in one hand.
Ask your players to stand in a rough circle a few feet apart.

PARTY!

They now start passing the ball from player to player: run the circle or randomly to anyone.

If a player drops or misses the ball they must be handicapped as follows:

– first fault: use one hand only (usually right)
– second fault: use the other hand (usually left)
– third fault: down onto one knee, using both hands
– forth fault: down on both knees, using both hands
– fifth fault: down on both knees, using only one hand
– sixth fault: down on both knees, using the other hand

Thereafter, the player must drop out. The last player in is the winner.
