Ladder ball is a popular game that’s great for family reunion, BBQs, or any other outdoor gathering. It’s easy to set up and play, but you will need to know how far apart to set the ladders for the perfect game. Let’s take a look at what you need to know.
What Is Ladder Ball?
Ladder ball is an entertaining lawn game that can be enjoyed by all ages. The goal of the game is to toss bolas (two balls attached by a rope) onto a ladder with three rungs—the higher rung gives you more points. The person with the most points at the end of the round wins!
How Far Apart Should You Place Your Ladders?
The best way to decide how far apart to place your ladders is to find an open space large enough for both teams and then move them in until they are 6-10 feet apart from each other. If you’re playing in an area with obstacles like trees or shrubs, make sure there’s enough room for two people on each side of the ladder without hitting anything when tossing their bolas.
Are There Any Other Rules To Keep In Mind?
Yes! One rule that should always be followed is that no one should ever throw their bolas before it’s their turn. Additionally, if your bola hits someone else’s bola as it’s flying through the air, it counts as a point for your opponent—so aim carefully! Lastly, once all bolas have been thrown and scored, each team should step back 4-5 feet before tossing again so no one gets hit by another team’s throws.
Ladder ball is a great game for any outdoor gathering and setting up your ladders correctly is key to playing the perfect game! Make sure both teams have enough space between them—6-10 feet apart—and remember not to throw until it’s your turn and watch out where you’re throwing so others don’t get hit! Have fun playing ladder ball with friends and family this summer season!
