A lively team sport for people who don’t need all that running around.
Combining handball with rock-paper-scissors, Stepball is played one step at a time: players must guess where their opponents are stepping in order to break free for a pass or cut off the ball. Victory in Stepball is determined not by raw athleticism, but by team strategy, smart passing, and sharp reading of opponents’ intentions.
