Tuesday, September 13

“Balloon Volleyball”
Standard volleyball with a few twists…the net will look the same, the court will not. Boundaries will be marked and the court will be covered with balloons. Any time a balloon pops or leaves the boundaries of the court, a point is awarded to the other team. There will be a lot going on but the only certainty is that this will be fun.
