Running and avoiding the ball game


Tennis balls


Two lines are marked about ten feet apart. One team lines up outside the lines armed with tennis balls. The players of the other team run up and down between the lines until hit with a ball when they are out. For each journey from one end to another they score 1 point. The Team with the most points when all are out wins.
Can be played as a Patrol (or six or lodge) knock-out competition.
