Hantis is a simple game created by Ben Fatherree, Jason Johns and friends, spreading throughout schools in the US through PE teachers. The sport has some similarities to table tennis (ping pong), but much more dynamic.

Hantis can be played using the resources schools already have: 4 tables, 1 ball. Unlike the majority all other sports, this sport is free if using these existing materials. It can also be played in a small area and rightly so, because it was invented inside a small classroom. Players are able to perform tricks within their first time playing and the Freestyle game mode rotates players on teams, which encourages a more playful competition instead of dominance.

The Future

One day students and people everywhere will be able to enjoy this game. After eight years of development, there are instructional videos, custom tables, shirts, & balls, and a whole website dedicated to Hantis. The aim is to make it a new Olympic sport and the first sport spread worldwide through the Internet.
