Tchoukball

  • Tchoukball ( Pronounced chukeball)
    Description: Tchoukball is a team building sport created in the 70's. The creators goal was to have a game that always has its players thinking and reacting. Tchoukball is played solely with offense, and defenders are not allowed. The court is set up at a large rectangle with two half circles at either end. Within each circle there is a "frame" that appears to look like a trampoline both on a 55 degree angle away from the center of the court, which causes the ball to rebound higher than the original shot.
    The goal of the game is to shoot the ball at the frame and have it land on the ground outside of the shooting circle.
