Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


Traditional Aboriginal game to help Aboriginal youth to get physically fit but also inspiring older members of the Indigenous community.


Tennis Balls, target (hula hoop)


Throw or roll a small object (a tennis ball or a disc) along a line at a moving target. Players are required to try and strike the moving object from a distance of about 5m to score points for their team.

This kind of game has historical references to hunting wildlife and helped children learn accuracy of the eye and speed in casting the spear, improving physical fitness and focus. It appears to be common to Western Australia and Victoria.
