How to play "Völkerball " in Germany

  1. 1. Völkerball
  2. 2. What you need… <ul><li>Two balls, two teams with up to 15 players each, a field with 2 equal parts, enthusiasm and a lot of time  </li></ul><ul><li>A bench on the central divide line and 6 colourful tools (e.g. flags) to set the limits of the field. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The first steps <ul><li>Each team chooses its King, who is placed outside the court of the opposite team. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher throws the 2 balls in the air and the students try to catch them to start the game. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The game <ul><li>The players as well as their King throw the balls at members of the opposing team in an attempt to eliminate as many players as possible. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Oh dear, I´m out  <ul><li>A player is eliminated from the central court: </li></ul><ul><li>If (s)he is hit on the full and doesn‘t manage to catch the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>If (s)he moves out of bounds when a ball is thrown at him/her. </li></ul><ul><li>But if a thrower has hit an opposing player he is allowed to enter his team´s field again. </li></ul>
  6. 6. But Attention…Hit is not hit! <ul><li>A player isn´t hit if: </li></ul><ul><li>-the ball touches the floor before hitting the player. </li></ul><ul><li>-the player catches the </li></ul><ul><li>ball. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Last King Standing <ul><li>When the last player is eliminated from the court, the King goes in the central court. </li></ul><ul><li>(S)he is granted three lives, which means (s)he is allowed to be hit three times. </li></ul><ul><li>When team-mates from the outer circle hit an opposing player, they can go back into the court. The King goes out then. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The End <ul><li>The game ends, when all the players and the King are out. </li></ul>
  9. 9. So then… <ul><li>We wish you good luck and a lot of fun when playing this typical German sport!    </li></ul>
