Zig Zag Relay


One large ball per team

Game Description

Divide the players into 2 or more evenly numbered teams. Each team stands in 2 lines facing inwards, with players facing a space opposite them.

The first player in the left line holds the ball.

On "Go!", the ball is passed in zig-zag fashion down the lines until it reaches the last player on the right hand side. That player then runs to the head of the left hand line, while the other players change sides as they move down a space.

The first team back in the original position and standing at alert is the winner.
