The game is Swingball, the rules are simple but the fun is never ending!

You never had the same colour racquets as your mates!

Play by the rules or just for fun and playing outside was never boring if you had this in your back garden!

Swingball is just a pole about 5ft tall, it is portable, and the ball flies around the pole at a constant speed - if you can hit it!!!  The ball travels up or down a metal coil depending on which way the players hit the ball. The game ends when the ball reaches the top or bottom of the coil. The harder and more you hit the ball, the quicker you win!

Generally the ball used for this game is either a tennis ball, but more recently a softer, sponge-rubber ball. The racquets are usually the size of tennis racquets, but are constructed of hard plastic.  It was always fun as you never had the same colour raquets as your mates! The game is played absolutely anywhere, usually with the pole being driven into a lawn or other grassy area, or as a holiday game on a flat stretch of sandy beach. Old Skool 70s this was born in...and still lives on in the summertime today.
