Dodge Ball

I finally found a Dodge Ball activity that is not a threat to personal safety. Best with large groups of any ability.

Players with racquets form a circle. One player is in the middle without racquet. Using their racquets, circled players roll a ball across the circle. Player in middle must avoid being touched by rolling ball. Rotate middle player frequently.

Hint: provide close supervision to ensure ball is rolled safely and game does not get out of control.

Variation
If this is too easy, add one or two more balls being passed at the same time.
