One goal, one passion.

Remember the days when all kids needed to have a ball was a ball? 

If you haven't seen that in a while, you'll be amazed how much fun kids

can have playing gaga ball. Many adults can't resist jumping in, too!

The game is played in a pit, often shaped like an octagon.

The high-quality, portable and inflatable pit we use is shaped like a hexagon.

The fun part is each player has a good chance of winning at some point 

because the rounds go fast. It's quite physical, but a very simple game to learn.

How gaga ball began:

Gaga ball, also known as octo-ball, is a “friendlier” form of dodge ball

that originated in Israel and has gained popularity,

primarily through summer camps, across the United States.

By the way, "ga" means "touch" or "hit" in Hebrew.

Our gaga ball pit is sure to be a "hit" at your next event!

How gaga ball goes:

Players start with one hand touching the wall of the pit.
The game begins with a referee or one player throwing the ball

into the center of the pit.
When the ball enters the pit, the players scream “Ga” for the first two bounces

and “Ball” on the third bounce, then the ball is in action.
Once the ball is in play, any player can hit the ball with an open or closed hand.

Players cannot hold or carry the ball.

If a ball touches a player below the knee (even if the player hits himself or herself),

he or she is out and must leave the pit.
If a player is hit above the knees, the play continues.
Using the walls of the pit to aid in jumping is allowed, as long as the player

does not permanently sit on the ledge of the pit.
If needed, a second ball can be thrown in the pit to expedite the end of the game.
The last player standing is the winner of that round!
