Two Ball is a basketball game that tests your accuracy and precision in three-point shooting. The first team that quickly makes 10 three-pointers before their opponents, win the game. Two Ball is a fun pickup game to play and to show off your shooting skills whether it’s for practice or competition. This game is for players who can shoot a basketball from long distances and have high stamina. You'll need 4 players to start this game.

Preparing to Play

  1. Gather a small group of players to play. You need a total of 4 players to play Two Ball. You must then break into two teams.
  2. Find two basketballs. You need one ball for each team. Each team needs a ball so they can have their own opportunity to shoot from the 3pt line.
  3. Get into correct positioning. Before the game starts, both teams need to be in their correct positions on the court. One player from each team needs to be in the layup line to pass out the ball to their teammate and also get the rebound. The teammate receiving the catch must be behind the 3-point line to shoot it, in order for the basket to count. You can decide who goes first.
  4. Move on to the next spot. If you make the shot, you can move on to the next spot in the 3pt line. For example, If you shoot from the right corner and make it, you move on to the right wing side.
  5. Use alternate shooters. If you miss the shot, then you stay at the same spot and it is now your teammate's turn to shoot the ball. You switch turns depending on if you keep missing the shot.
  6. Make two shots when your team reaches the opposite corner. Once your team gets to the opposite corner of that spot you started from, your team must then make two shots in total.
    • The extra shot counts as your team's sixth shot since you need 10 to win the game.
    • Once you make your sixth shot, you have to rotate back to the previous spot you were in.

Playing the Game

  1. Determine who is shooting first. It doesn't necessarily matter who's going first because everyone has the chance to shoot the ball. The roles of the shooter and rebounder will be consistently switching throughout the game unless your teammate makes 10 straight threes.
  2. Start the game. To start off the game, you can clear the ball by making contact with the two basketballs. After making contact, pass the ball out to your teammate in the corner.
  3. Win by making every shot before your opponents. You and your teammate keep shooting until you make 10 shots in total from the 5 three point positions. Two Ball is about having really good accuracy when you shoot the ball. Each player has the chance to make the shot.
  4. Stay composed. During the game, you and your teammate might get stuck on a spot where both of you are missing your shots and the other team is ahead of you. In that situation, stay calm and collected.
    • Trust in your shot mechanics because if you keep rushing the shot in, your shot's just going to take longer for you to make.
    • Be patient and don't think about the other team.

Playing with Variations

  1. Use alternate shooters after five shots. Instead of switching roles for each spot, you can switch when your teammate hits 5 threes from the five spots. So, for example, if your teammate is the shooter and you are the rebounder, you have to wait till they make 5 three's in. Then you would switch roles and it would be your turn as the shooter.
  2. Try calling sudden death. If your team hits the last shot and wins, the other team can call "chance", meaning that they would have one last opportunity to make the three-pointer for the game to go into overtime. Where this happens, both teams keep shooting until one misses. The team that doesn't miss would be declared as the winner.

Tips

  • Always jump when shooting.
  • Bend your knees and elevate quickly for a better quality shot.
  • Have good sportsmanship if you win or lose.
  • Stretch before you play.
  • When you give your teammate a good pass, the chances of making their shot is better.
  • If you are out of breath, take a break.

Warnings

  • Be cautious of your surroundings when players are shooting the basketball so you can avoid getting hit in the face.
