About GaGa Ball

GaGa Ball is believed to have originated in Israel, in the 1950s. ‘Ga’ means “hit” or “touch” in Hebrew.  In the rules of GaGa Ball, the ball must touch the ground two times before it is considered in play, hence the name.  The object of the game is to hit the ball at or below opponents’  knees to eliminate them from the pit.  The last one left in the GaGa Ball pit is the winner. Then, a new game starts all over and everyone jumps back in!

What makes GaGa Ball great is that players of any size, age, or athletic ability can basically have the same chance to win as anybody else.  Games generally last only minutes, and eliminated players are back in the action quickly.  Once a player is out, they can have as much fun watching and cheering while the other players finish the game.
