3 Legged Football

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


A normal game of 'Footy' only 3-Legged


Football, Goals, Neckers or rope


Divide Scouts into Small Teams of equal numbers. (4 or 6 works best)
Split teams into pairs and tie legs together. Make sure knots are not too tight!!
Have 2 teams play, and once a goal is scored or time limit reached swap around.
If Neckers/rope comes loose, Scouts must stop and re-tie before continuing.

Variation - 4 Legged Football.
3 Scouts tied together to make 4 legs, hard to coordinate but really funny to watch.
