This beautifully crafted wooden ladder toss game will make the perfect addition to your next outdoor event. This double ladder ball set comes with 2 durable finished wood frames and ladder rungs with built-in scorekeepers, 6 real golf ball bolas (3 red, 3 blue) for two teams, high strength nylon carrying case for easy storage and transport, and easy to learn game instructions.
To play the game, first set up each ladder 15 feet apart. Ladder Ball is played with two teams of 1-2 players per team. If playing in teams of two, a player from each team stands beside each ladder frame. For example: Team A, Player 1 and Team B, Player 1 stand beside Ladder A; Team B, Player 2 and Team A, Player 2 stand beside Ladder B.
Ladder Ball is played in rounds, each round consists of both teams tossing 3 bolas. The first player tosses their bola, then the player from the opposing team (standing by the same ladder) tosses their bola. This continues until all bolas are tossed. Bolas must be tossed individually underhanded and can be bounced off the ground.
Points are awarded for bolas that wrap completely around a ladder rung. 3 points for the top rung, 2 points for the middle rung, and 1 point for the bottom rung. One team scores at the end of each round. The score is taken as the difference of each team’s points for that round. For example: Team A had one bola around the middle rung (2 points) and one bola around the top rung (3 points) for a total of 5 points; Team B had two bolas round the bottom rung (1 point each = 2 points). The score for this round is 5 – 2 = 3 points for Team A. The team that scored the last round begins tossing the next round.
The team that scores exactly 21 points at the end of a round wins. If any team goes over 21 points at the end of a round, their points do not count for said round and play continues.
This ladder toss game set is easy to set up and easy to transport in a convenient carrying case. Perfect for getting everyone outside and active.
