Activities

Gaga Ball

Gaga can be a large group of people playing individually, a group of people working as a team against another team, or even one-on-one matches. It is a great game that people of all ages can enjoy together!

Gameplay

Gaga is played in a large octagon called the Gaga court. Gaga begins with someone throwing the gaga ball up into the air. When it bounces the players say “Ga” each bounce for the first two bounces. After two bounces the ball is in play and the game starts. If the ball is caught after a player pops it up (see rule 6 below) then this will repeat. If a player is hit below the waist, the player is out. Using the walls of the octagon to aid in jumping is legal as long as the player does not permanently sit on the ledge of the octagon.

9-Square

Gameplay

The person in the middle square will serve the ball by hitting the ball up and out of their square.  When the ball comes into your square simply hit the ball up and out of your square into any other square.  

  • If the ball falls into your square, you are out.
  • If the ball is hit outside of the whole game structure, the last person who touched the ball is out.
  • If someone double hits the ball, they are out.
  • If someone hits the game structure, they are out.

When someone gets out, they move to the back of the line.  Everyone who was behind them will advance forward one square to fill-in the empty place.
