Q: What is Gaga Ball?

A: Gaga Ball is a game that is comprised of (up to) two foam balls, and played in an octagonal shaped enclosure called the “pit”. The game is designed to be low-impact, high-energy, and inclusive of multiple people.

Q: How many people can play?

A: One of the best things about Gaga Ball is the sheer number of players that can participate at once. With virtually no limitations, Gaga Ball is set up to include participants of all ages, at any volume. Additionally, each game goes by relatively quickly, which allows those who weren’t a part of the prior game to quickly jump in.

Q: How does the Gaga Ball work?

A: It’s quite simple! To set up the octagonal “pit”, participants jump in and are given a foam ball. Once the game starts, the ball is hit around the pit with players attempting to hit the opponent below the waist. Once a player is hit, they’re out for the remainder of the game. After a few minutes, you can add an additional ball to increase the stakes and shorten the game.

Q: Where does Gaga come from?
