In the past, gaga ball (sometimes written as “ga-ga ball”) was a relatively obscure game that most people had never heard about. However, its popularity at youth camps, churches, and schools is quickly growing because most age groups can play it safely. The game is also known as Octoball, Gorilla Ball, or Israeli Dodgeball and is a fast paced sport. Gaga ball is played in an octagon shaped enclosure, also known as a gaga pit. The more players, the better! It is played with a soft foam ball and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the waist or knees.
While there are homemade versions of the gaga pit, these are unstable and difficult to put together. They are inconvenient to transport, made of wood, and require gaga ball brackets for assembly, which also requires a lag screw or bolt.
After watching my grandkids play gaga ball at summer camp, I was inspired to design and build a better gaga ball pit—which I dubbed the Octopit. My gaga ball pit is:
- Easy to assemble
- Requires no fasteners, bolts, or screws
- Portable or can be installed permanently.
- Made out of top quality steel and polyvinyl
- Sturdy and durable!
