Stoepen – The Netherlands

Stoepen Europe The Netherlands Ball game Props: a ball N.o.p.: 2
Two boys are standing on the pavement, each on one side of the road. The higher the sides of the steps are, the better it is to play this game. The trick of this game is to throw the ball against the side of the steps at the position of the other boy. If you manage to do so, the ball bounces back to you and you have got a point. If you throw a little harder and the ball bounces back in a way that you can catch the ball, you have got two points. It all depends on agreements made before playing the game. Ensure yourself that it is a calm street without cars, it’s safer and more fun to play.
