Remember those fun ball games we used to play in gym class or the park? Well, imagine that but on a much larger scale. Welcome to the world of Omnikin giant ball games, where a simple ball game transforms into an epic activity of teamwork and strategy.
Omnikin giant balls are not your average balls; they are big, inflatable spheres that can be up to 72” feet in diameter. They’re designed for high-energy giant ball games and often require a collective effort to maneuver. They’re fantastic tools for big ball games for physical and recreational activities that engage children and adults alike.
In this article, we will present some of the most engaging large ball game options you must try, whether it’s for physical education, team building, or just plain fun.
Giant ball game #1: Omnikin Kin-Ball sport
Primary Skillsets: Eye-hand coordination, eye-foot coordination, hand-foot coordination, cardiovascular capacity
Number of Players: Up to 30 (divided into 3 teams)
Kin-Ball is perhaps the most popular Omnikin large ball game and is played internationally. The basic premise is simple: three teams compete to keep a type of Kin-Ball, Outside Kin-Ball, Practice Kin-Ball, or Street Kin-Ball from touching the ground. One team serves the ball while shouting the colour of an opposing team, who must then catch it before it touches the ground. Not only is this game physically demanding, but it also requires sharp attention and quick thinking.
Giant ball game #2: The Corridor
Primary Skillset: Eye-hand coordination, eye-foot coordination, hand-foot coordination, cooperation
Number of Players: Up to 30
The Corridor is a team-focused large ball game emphasizing cooperation and coordination. Participants form two lines to create a “corridor” and must work together to transport an object from one end to the other. The unique challenge comes in varying the technique for carrying the object—overhead, at shoulder height, or even with feet.
If any team member fails to touch the object or if it’s dropped, the step must be repeated, making precise teamwork essential for success. You can use any one of these Omnikin big balls for the game: Omnikin Multicolor ball 33”, Omnikin Ultra ball 36”, Omnikin Official KIN-BALL 48”, Omnikin KIN-BALL Practice ball 33”.
Giant ball game #3: Monster Truck
Primary Skillset: Relaxation
Number of Players: Up to 30
Monster Truck is a lighthearted and relaxing big ball game where the objective is to “crush” participants using a giant Omnikin ball, such as Omnikin Multicolor ball 33”, Omnikin Ultra ball 36”, Omnikin Official KIN-BALL 48”, or Omnikin KIN-BALL Practice ball 33”.
Players lie on their backs in a circle, and the activity leader rolls the ball over each participant’s stomach. The intensity of the roll can be adjusted based on the age and comfort level of the participants, adding a customizable element to the game. It’s a fun way to engage with the giant ball while fostering a sense of community and trust among players.
Giant ball game #4: Bubblegum Bulldog
Primary Skillset: Cardiovascular capacity, team work & strategies
Number of Players: Up to 30
Bubblegum Bulldog is an exhilarating big ball game of agility and strategy where participants must cross the gym without being touched by “balls and statues,” controlled by the activity leader. The aim is to be the last survivor, dodging obstacles as you traverse the playing area.
Each round begins and ends with the activity leader’s signal, ratcheting up tension and excitement. It’s a fast-paced game that keeps participants on their toes, requiring quick thinking and even quicker movements. All of these balls can be used for Bubblegum Bulldog: Omnikin Multicolor ball 33”, Omnikin Ultra ball 36”, Omnikin Official KIN-BALL 48”, or Omnikin KIN-BALL Practice ball 33”.
Giant ball game #5: 3 in 1
Primary Skillset: Eye-hand coordination and cooperation
Nombre de joueurs : Up to 30
Want to maximize the use of an Omnikin Multicolor ball 33”, Omnikin Ultra ball 36”, Omnikin Official KIN-BALL 48”, or Omnikin KIN-BALL Practice ball 33”? 3 in 1 is a versatile Omnikin ball game that consists of three distinct challenges, all centered around the objective of cooperating to manipulate a ball between two concentric circles.
In Start Your Engines, the goal is speed as participants work to complete laps with the ball as quickly as possible.
“Indiana Jones” turns the tables by introducing a “volunteer prey” who must avoid getting touched by the moving ball.
Finally, “Planet Chaser” requires the group to keep the ball away from a pursuing volunteer. Each mini-game brings its own set of thrills and skills, making 3 in 1 a comprehensive test of teamwork, strategy, and agility.
