Big Room Games, Games & Icebreakers

Super Sanctuary Jesus Ball


This one is simple to play as it’s really just an indoor modification of volleyball. Here it is:

Take a regular volleyball net and set it up in a big room at your church. You can even use your sanctuary if you get permission from the proper authorities. Now grab a couple of inflatable beach balls (NOT volleyballs) and inflate them. Finally, split the teams into two equal teams. You can have any number of players on a team, just make sure teams are “even” in ability.

1. Games go to 21, and the team must win by two.
2. Unlike volleyball, players can hit the ball as many times as needed to return the ball over the net.
3. Unlike volleyball, the beach ball can hit anything in the room and still be “in play” with one exception: the floor. If the ball bounces off a wall, a pew, or the balcony, it’s still in play!
4. There is no out of bounds; if the ball crosses the net, it is in play and must be returned.
5. Spiking is allowed.

Have fun!
