Chair Basketball

  • Indoors
  • Equipment: 1 chair per person; 1 set of headbands for one team; inflated round balloons; 2 scorecards
  • Formation: Circle-sitting on chairs- alternating teams

Divide the group into two teams. One team wears headbands. Teams sit in the pattern outlined above (chairs are a few feet apart).

The players must remain seated throughout the entire game. The game begins with the placing of a balloon between the two teams. The object of the game is for both teams to attempt to pass the balloon from one team member to another to the end chair, where one member of their team is holding his arms in a circular fashion (similar to a basketball hoop). The team that scores the most hoops in a given period of time wins.
