Scoops

The new sport of Scoops was created by FirmSportsLLC from Chicago, Illinois USA in the Summer 2005. Scoops is a non-contact game, which when played at its highest level, resembles two pitchers hurling a ball at each other trying to throw a strike, and trying to catch the ball like a line-drive. The versatility of the game allows instant high level competition. The scoop allows you to throw even faster than you could with just your arm, and the blocker allows the player to slow any shot into a catchable pop-up. You can throw fastballs, curveballs, sliders and drop shots. The more an you play,  the more creative you can become with your shots.

The best thing about Scoops is how easy it is to play. All you need is a table of any size for the ball to bounce on, a Scoops set, and a friend. It can be played in lunchrooms, gyms, classrooms, backyards or the park. Wherever there is a table, Scoops can be played.

Equipment Required: Any table, 2 scoops, 2 blockers, 1 wiffle ball.
