What is Gaga (Israeli Dodge-ball)?
Gaga is an exciting version of dodge-ball that requires players to hit the ball with their hand or fist (rather than catching & throwing) below the waist of other players.
Although you can play anywhere, the official version requires a "pit" in for containing game play, as well as allowing wall shots. Guess who has one...? Last summer we built our very first Gaga Pit and our campers couldn't play enough gaga... they loved it!
In gaga, players lob the ball underhand, trying to hit one another below the knees (or below the waist, depending on where you’re playing) to eliminate their opponents from the court. If the ball goes over the wall, or if it is caught before bouncing, the person who launched it is out of the game.
