Paper Wad Basketball

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for you to start thinking about new ways to use old stuff - for fun, family and the sheer joy of always having something to play.

Here's a sample game, called "Paper Wad Basketball"

The goal of this game is to toss a wad into an opponent's cup or glass. The first player to achieve the goal wins the round. Play as many rounds as everyone wants. The player with the highest total wins then wins the game.


Players toss wads simultaneously and can score only by getting their paper wads into the cup or glass of the player sitting on the opposite side. Players can attempt to deflect each other's paper wads by hitting a wad in flight with another wad. Paper wads that fall off the table are out of play. If someone touches a wad in flight with her hand, it is a foul. A fouled player gets a free throw (no one else is throwing during the foul shot).

About The Author: My book, "Junkyard Sports," was recently published by Human Kinetics. The whole idea of the book is to help kids and families rediscover the joy of making up ways to play traditional sports, without having any of the traditional equipment.
