Folk's Ball
You will need a ball and a place 8-10 m long and 4-5 m wide. Divide this square into two parts by a line. You will need at least 10 participants from two teams. Every team chooses their captain. The teams take their place in the field, every team in its own square. The captains take their place behind the opponents' end line. The teams choose who will start the game. The captain who has to start the game throws the ball over the opponents' team to his team. The participant, who gets the ball, tries to hit any opponent. If the opponent is successful to catch the ball, he tries to hit any participant of the first team, but if the opponent is not successful in catching the ball, he goes to help his captain who tries to get the ball and help his team. When all the participants of a team are hit out, the captain can go into the square and if he is also hit out, the game is over.
The teams change the squares and the game can be started again.
