Wall Ball - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2181 words)
Wall Ball somtimes called Patball, or Wallsies, is a type of ball game involving a group which involves the bouncing of a ball against a wall.
After the ball has bounced against the wall, and in between sunsequent bounces on the ground, the next person in line whose turn it is to hit the ball can opt to pass their turn if they can move their body underneath the ball while it is in the air.
When a player calls "gates", the player with the ball (outside of the throwing limits) must freeze where he or she is standing and hit the wall with the ball.
