Tug of War

What You Will Need for Tug of War:
  • 6 or more players – there should be an equal number for each team.
  • Rope with the middle marked
  • A center marking on the ground
Rules of the Game:
  • If a team member sits or falls, the opposing team wins.
  • The rope must remain below arms (can not go above the shoulders).
  • Elbows must be above the knees.
Objective of the Game:
  • To pull the opposing team past the center line.
How to Play Wall Ball:
  1. Two even teams hold opposite ends of the rope.
  2. The center line marked on the rope is directly over the center line marked on the ground.
  3. Both teams count off, “One, two, three, PULL” at which time all players use strength to pull the rope as hard as possible.
  4. Teams must pull a player from the other team over the center line. The first team to do so wins.
