Blo-Ball (Blo-Bal) is essentially table tennis without the paddles. Players compete by blowing the ping-pong ball back and forth, and score a point by shooting the ball past his/her opponent. The table is approximately six feet long and three feet wide, with three-inch high rails along the sides to keep the ball in play. The table legs are adjustable to accommodate the different heights of the players.

Blo-Ball (Blo-Bal) can be played by two (Singles) or four (Doubles) people. Scoring is similar to volleyball. A player only scores a point on his/her service. The first player to reach eleven wins, but must win by two. see a video demonstration of blo-ball.
