Ballsies

Despite its name this involved a lot of hand-eye co-ordination and had nothing to do with boys - only girls played it :wink:

You played this one on your own...throwing a small ball against a wall with a certain sequence of complicated moves, you had to start by throwing the ball a certain way TEN times, then do it a different way NINE times, then in a more difficult way EIGHT times, and so on and so on. But the moves got harder and more complicated (throwing and catching under your leg, twisting round twice before catching it, etc) and if you made a mistake you always had to start again back at the beginning with ten.

Could get slightly obsessive if you were a perfectionist...sometimes the school nurse had to be called to intervene and get kids back into the classroom after break! :lol:

We used to play two-baller - again, no boys! But I was rubbish and so hated it.

I remember seeing girls play this at my old junior school - Sherington road in Charlton. Always a mystery to us boys!
