Piece of thin rope
Some sort of light weight that can be attached to the rope - we use a hand brush.

Game Description

Attach the weight to the end of the rope.

Arrange the participants in a ring.

One person stands in middle of ring with rope and swings rope around the ring so that the weighted end goes round where the participants are.

The members of the ring then have to jump to avoid the rope as it comes around.

The rope shouldn't be swung higher than knee level

Anyone 'hit' by the rope is out.

The last person remaining is the winner.

(Whoever is in the centre swinging the rope gets very dizzy !!!).

The speed of the rope can be varied to suit the ability of the participants.
