Catchball is a highly successful social-sport start-up from Israel and is globally recognized. It encourages women to come together as a team to socialize, be active, and have fun.
Catchball is a team sport for women, similar to volleyball, set up and played on a volleyball court. The object of the game is to pass the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent's court to earn a point, and to prevent the same effort by the other team.
Each team can touch the ball up to three times on their side of the net, before returning it to the opponent's court.
