- Number of Players: 10 and up
- Objective: to be the team with the most points
- Activity Level: High
- Equipment: chairs, two large wastebaskets or other containers
Divide the group into two teams. Arrange two rows of chairs, or you can use the floor, approximately three feet apart. Place the large wastebasket at both ends. Seat the teams alternating players. The leader puts the balloon in play by tossing it in the middle. The players must remain seated at all times. The object of the game is to bat the balloon down the court and score a basket. As in regular basketball, when the balloon is hit out of bounds, the leader awards the other team the balloon to put in lay. The game can be played for time or set a score to be reached.
