Ladder Ball, also called Ladder Golf, is a 2 or 4 player game, where players throw a Bola across the yard towards a ladder ball goal post. Each rung that you wrap the Bola around gives you different points, depending on the difficulty of the rung.
Place each post at the opposite side of your playing area, the distance for Ladderball is approx 15 feet or 5 paces between each post. Give each team mate or person 3 of the throwing pieces, either red or blue.
Now you are ready to play Ladder Ball.
You can play this game with either 2 or 4 people.
If playing with 2 each person stands with one person on each side. If you are playing a doubles team, you and your team mate stand opposite of each other.
How to Score in Ladder ball:
The top bar equals 3 points
The middle bar equals 2 points
The lower bar equals 1 points
If you wrap it around the side of the ladder, the point is applied for whichever row it is on
If you miss the Ladder rungs all together, 0 points
The points system works so that if each person gets 3 points it cancels out and no one gets any points. If blue gets 3 and red gets 2, you give 1 point to team blue.
So for example: Team blue gets 2 pieces on the lower and middle row. Team red gets 1 piece on the top row. Each team got 3 points in total which cancel each other out so each team is still at 0 before the next round.As you can see, if both teams get close to the same score it can make it challenging. If can also be a fast game if one person gets lucky and wraps 3 Bolas around the top row for a total of 9 points. It’s harder to aim for the top row so this attempt can be a risky play.
Beware, it is possible for your piece to fall or slide off when another Bola lands on that same rung, so the round isn’t over till it’s over.
The game is won when the first player or first team reaches 12 or 21.
