Novel German Game, “Swing-ball,” Develops Agility and Strength

AMONG the fair sex of Germany the new game, called “Swing-ball,” is rapidly coming into popularity. The game, played as shown in the photo at the right, develops agility, alertness and strength, and helps to keep that boyish figure and schoolgirl complexion.

The ball, similar to a basket-ball, slides along a rope, each end of which is held by a contestant. The players try to hit each other by swinging the ball around in a circle. Ability to jump, duck and dodge are the chief assets of the defense.
