Zig Zag Relay

Equipment Needed:

  • 1 large (sponge) ball per team

How to Play

  • Divide players into 2 teams with even numbers on each team
  • The team then forms two lines with players facing towards each other
  • The ball is passed between the two lines zig-zag fashion until it reaches the last player on the right had side. That player then runs to the head of the left hand line.
  • The team must stand still if the ball is dropped, where it is returned to the start of the line.
  • First past the post, wins.
