Hand Ball is one of the neat tennis games for kids and cool kids games.
This activity needs to be played near a wall - not near windows please!
Draw a playing area with chalk about 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. Draw another line 12 feet from one end. This is the serving line.
Begin by having the 2 players stand in the center of the playing field. Both face the wall.
The player serving first stands behind that line, bounces the ball on the ground one time, and hits it with his palm against the wall.
If it doesn't, the server gets another try. Two serves are all that's allowed. If both aren't good plays, then the other player serves.
If the ball bounces back over the serving line, player # 2 has to hit the ball with her palm against the wall.
The ball can only bounce once. Play continues in this fashion.
Each person takes a turn hitting the ball against the wall with his palm.
These include: the ball bounces twice before being hit, it ball bounces before it hits the wall, or the ball goes out of the playing area boundaries.
If the server makes an error, then the other player becomes the server.
Only servers can receive points. That happens when the other player makes an error.
The server receives one point.
The first player who gets 21 points wins. Good luck and have fun!
