Spry is a simple ball game for three players.


  • some kind of ball


The basic principle is quite simple: Three players are standing in a line. The two outer players pass the ball between each other, while the third (in the middle) has to intercept the ball. When the manages to get the ball, he switches positions with the player that allowed him to get it.

Typically, some kind of markers are used to mark the region where the middle player may move around during the game.


Of course, you can introduce additional rules to the game:

  • more participants
  • no passing above the height of the players
  • ball must hit floor (inside the middle region of the playing field) at least during ever third pass
  • etc.
