Have you ever played Gaga Ball? If not, you need to discover the thrill! Gaga Ball is a fun and competitive game that almost anyone can play, regardless of age! It’s a great way to get exercise and have fun doing it! Gaga Ball is played in an octagon or hexagon pit. The object is to hit or slap the ball (not throw it) into another player’s leg. It must hit at the knee or below to get someone out.
So what we are asking for is any builders, planners, handy person(s), hard workers, refreshment providers, donators of supplies that would like to help plan and build two Gaga Ball pits at Central Woodlands to send us an email.
Once we get our group together and make the plans, we will then set aside a day in the spring to build them.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you.
