Equipment includes a small bat strapped firmly to each hand.
Usually played with a ‘High Bounce’ ball or with a table tennis ball for ‘Doubles Ping Pong’.
Games can be played in confined spaces and set up takes only a few seconds.
Here are some basic rules or you can adapt your own favourite sport rules as practice or for fun
Doubles Solo - Workout with rhythm
Bats have a castinette sound when clapped together making them ideal for dance moves.
Special needs kids seem to have rhythm and the sound will enhance their experience.
Bounce the ball on the ground with left and right hands alternately
Consciously exercise both arms, both shoulders and back
Try playing to music to add rhythm - Set targets as you improve
Get closer to the ground to increase speed, exercise level and concentration
Juggle the ball in the air with both hands to improve skill and concentration
Doubles Solo - Wall Workout
Play against any wall - Bounce once on the ground
Serve with one hand against the wall and take the return with the other hand
Start close to the wall and move back as speed and power improves
Doubles Handball - Two players
Draw a circle on a hard surface into which the ball is played
Play and receive the ball with alternate hands
Move around as the play dictates
Scoring - Lose points for wrong hand or missing the circle
Game gains power and speed as proficiency improves
Doubles Ping Pong
Use any table - Smaller is harder
Play is to keep the ball bouncing on the table like table tennis
Scoring - Lose points for wrong hand or missing the table
Move around as play dictates - No formal sides
DoublesHandball is virtually unlimited in the number of variations that present themselves depending on the needs of the player. Some kids split up the kits and use one bat each for their own game of choice.
This game is ready to go to market. I have put in a great deal of work into its design and development and I am willing to discuss any partnership or if that is not satisfactory, a complete sale of all IP and samples etc, as it would be a travesty to leave it on the shelf. Quite simply, I just don't have the funds to promote it however, All collateral was completed on a shoestring and can be improved upon significantly to increase impact.
I am a marketing specialist with serious experience and I can be of value to the process ( my CV is available ).
I also have a number of other sports training mechanisms in various stages of prototyping and pre production that may be considered in discussions.
