- Tennis ball/s
- Rope/String (optional)
Mark out a length of ground or rope (upto 10 metres) with a basket at the end. The basket is the genie. To play the game each player has a chance to throw a tennis ball into the genie at specific points on the length. Start near the genie and work your way back. Each player takes turns and if you throw the ball into the genie, you can move further up the length. If you do not get the ball into the basket you have to stay at the same place until you do. The winner is the player who throws the ball into the genie at the longest point of the marked out length.
