(the best name i can think of is “skipball” but i think there must be a better one)

skipball is played on a basketball court in teams of 4. the offense starts on the baseline with one player holding a racquetball. the defense starts behind half court. the offense gets a point if they can run the ball across the opponent’s baseline without the player holding the ball ever being touched. the offense is allowed to pass the ball to each other, but the ball has to bounce exactly once before it reaches the other player. players are not allowed to hold or push each other.

skipball is played as best of 5 sets with each team getting 11 tries per set to score points. if you score on the 11th try, you get to continue doing tries until you fail one.
