Extreme Wall Ball

Game Description: 
A fun game great for throwing, catching and tracking. All you need is a tennis ball and a wall!
Try to throw and catch the tennis ball for as long as you can to outlast your opponent, or work together to see how long you can go!
Game Rules: 
First indicate some sort of marker or level on the wall that is the minimum height for each throw. The first player starts by throwing the tennis ball off the wall and the second player will wait for the ball to bounce and then catch it. Once player 2 catches the tennis ball they will then throw it against the ball and the cycle continues until somebody misses catching the ball or the ball is thrown beneath the minimum required height on the wall. You can play with 3-4 players, just outline the order before starting the game and make sure everyone knows who is passing to them and who they are passing to. Score can be kept to see who wins the most rounds, or to see how long your team can go without dropping the ball!
Adaptations (optional): 
Any different type of ball can be used for this game as long as it bounces. A tennis ball might be more difficult for younger children to catch, try using a bigger rubber ball.
Progression (optional): 
Try letting the ball bounce twice, or not at all to make it a little more challenging! Try only 1 hand catches for another challenge!
