We will take this off the "sport" list as he is missing the "skill" requirement.  ;)

There are definitely some improvements to be made, but everyone I know that has played whillyball is dying to get on for another game when it's over.

And I don't think it can be considered a kids sport when kids are terrible at it.

Kid's can barely score in the game... Teenager is really the entry level for the game IMO.

You ever see kids play trac-ball? They have tremendous control.

Um, ok? I don't know much about trac-ball but don't think it means much for whirlyball, you need long arms to just reach the ball in whirly ball...

The skill level is off the charts. Is there timeouts because they all look out of gas.  :)

The groom was 6'8" and managed.
But he's not nearly as clumsy as @Something Fishy. Then again, nobody is.

That sounds like a challenge.

Good luck trying to beat me. I literally trip over my own feet while standing in one spot and not moving.

Nah, @Dan 's just happy he found someone clumsier than him

Hell yeah
