Suggested Age: 7+
Players: Divide into teams
How to Play:
Throw the Street ball against the floor so it bounces against the wall and returns. Opponent must catch the Street before it bounces (or after 1 bounce if no bounce is too difficult). Players should agree on the width of the court, how close they are allowed to the wall (usually 1 meter away), and a throw line (usually about 4 meters from the wall) to stop the ball from being thrown too far back.
Throw against the wall first, then the floor. Catch before the 2nd or 3rd bounce.
- Play 1v1.
- If playing 2v2, alternate throws.
- 3+ players. As players drop the ball or do not reach it in time, they lose a life. Each player starts with 3 lives and when they lose all 3, they withdraw from the game until only 2 players are left to compete for a victory.
Similar to street squash, but played in a corner. Street is thrown into the corner and must bounce off both walls and the floor. The opponent has to catch the street before it hits the floor a second time. Watch the video here: Street Corner

If you’re like me, you grew up playing the awesome game of wall ball. It’s a staple of many childhood memories. But regardless of age, it’s still a great game to play, especially nowadays with our Street ball.
The other week I went to check out an area on James Island, SC that has a bunch of really amazing and talented graffiti artwork by The Sheepman on the back of a huge warehouse building. It made me think, these would be great walls for the Street ball! So now, I’m on a mission to find really wicked, cool walls all around the world for us to play a game of wall ball on. Graffiti walls are much more visually appealing than plain brick walls. Check out some below and visit our Pinterest board for more. Don’t hesitate to share your own findings!
