Gaga Ball

So what is gaga ball?

Fun! Gaga Ball is fun. It came to PSR in 2012 and became an immediate favorite. Historically Gaga Ball comes from Israeli camps and was brought over to the United States in recent decades. In Hebrew, ga ga means touch-touch. 

Players are in one of our two awesome octagonal pits, where they hit a small ball at opponents’ feet and shins in an attempt to be crowned the champion. Gaga is a game of high energy for all levels of play. The most athletic to the least, the most aggressive to the most passive, can win this fun-for-all game.

Accommodates: 30 participants per pit
Time: 5 minutes – hours of fun
Difficulty: Easy
