Binball - noun - sport.

Binball is the original and only surviving sport created during the 2005 Summer of Love in Abersoch, North Wales.

The real 'Bethlehem' of Binball was Gwell Y Mor campsite after a 80ltr bin was provided by Scatman John (the manager of the Gwell Y Mor site) to ensure his site was not desicrated by litter. Christian S Weaver, James O'Sullivan, and Nick Taylor worked on the early formation of the game's rules and regulations, aided by seasoned Bin inhabitant Camping Gaz...these early pioneers knew the significance of what they had created, and worked tirelessly to develop the finer points of the game.

Recently Binball has grown in popularity amongst a select squad of devoted players, with training taking place at the Stapleton training centre during the Summer months, and at smaller more fitness based centers such as Moss Side in Horwich during the colder Winter off-season.

Rules

Binball requires five key 'ingredients'.

The Pitch - an large (250sqft) area of neatly mown grass The Bin - a regulation 80ltr black refuse bin The Keeper - any item weighty enough to precipitate the stableness of the bin The Ball - a size 5, well pumped-up indoor football (ideally, the GAP promotional football) The Players - up to 8 - 10 players, well versed in the art of the volley

The aim of the game is to get the ball into the bin by vollying it between players. Play is begun by a 'bounce-out', where any player may take the ball, and vigorously propell the ball into the inside centre of the bin, resulting in a bounce sufficient in power to make the ball clear the rim of the bin, and thus enter free play. Should the ball land on the ground between volleys, play continues without another bounce-out...put simply, the volley does not need to last from the bounce-out up untill the next bin.

Games can last as long as the team chooses to continue, play is usually ended by a 'three more bins' target, although this number can change depending on how good the subsiquent bins are.

A player may use any part of his body other than the hand or arm...favoured methods include, the knee, the head, the chin, the 'trademark back bin', and the foot. Use of the hand during a competitive game results in the player serving a 5 minute period in the sin bin...(the side of the pitch)

Current notable players

Binjamin Netenyahu, Camping Gaz, Logdon Donovon, James O'Sullivan, Nick Taylor, Christian Weaver, Tim Shinners, Rob Taylor, Oliver Haywood, Jonny Lomax, Gareth Fox, Paul Maurice, Paul Parkinson.
