Poull Ball is a new fun and active game, developed in 2010 by Francois Poull, a PE teacher from Belgium.
Two teams play against each other using a big soft ball. In brief, the point is to shoot down a large inflatable cube from a platform. The rules are simple, everyone is able to play, everyone can score, and as a main rule there is no physical contact as such.
The game will give you a high pulse, good energy and a sweaty brow – it is highly recommendable.
Many adults spend their waking hours doing something they do not really want to do in places where they do not really want to be.
A playful approach is the exact opposite. Play is free. Play is uncertainty and excitement. Play creates wholeness, room and cohesion between body and mind, it creates understanding and builds bridges. It makes us want to learn, sparkle, chant, hug, cry and shout with joy … it gives us maximum readiness for the here and now which is necessary for us in order to learn new things and develop.
