The greatest playground game ever created by man. All you need to play is a decent-sized group of people, a tennis ball, and a (preferably brick) wall without windows. Some people play with a racquet ball for a tougher challenge.
The object of this game is to be the last man surviving. Players throw the tennis ball
against the wall in hopes that it'll another player will try and get the ball and fail to.
The tennis ball bounces across the ground and a player will get it and throw it back against the wall. If a player gets hit with the ball they have to go a haul ass to the wall and touch it with any part of the body to be safe. If another player gets the ball, throws it, and hits the wall before the runner touches the wall, the runner is "out." (Close calls and ties always go to the runner.) Once someone gets out three times, they are done for the remainder of the game. Another way a player can get an out is if they throw the ball and someone else catches it before it hits the ground.
Double-Touch Out: A variation of the game, where if a player touches the ball, the ball touches the ground, and the player touches the ball, they receive and out. A finally way to get out is if you take more than a throwing step
while in possession of the ball.
Spread-Eagle: Once a player gets their three outs, the get up against the wall and into the spread eagle
position. Players who aren't out get the option to peg
the player for free, but from a distance. They better pray to God they don't get hit in the Big Jim and the Twins
or their face. But once it's all said and done, and the player has been pegged, they are free to join back in.
Drumline: A third variation, where after a player gets three outs, they go to the end of the wall. The player has to run back and forth across the wall a given number of times without getting hit with the ball to get back in. For example: A player runs back and forth across the wall 10 times without being pelted or touched by the ball in anyway and then they get a new set of outs.
Pegs: A somewhat outlawed
version to the game. People can throw the ball at other players so that the player has to run to the wall. However, the person who hits that player has to run too.
Wallball is my favorite game to play on the playground or blacktop during recess.
