Handball drill: king of the court
King of the court
- The teacher sets out three areas of approximately equal size with pawns.
- It is best to use the volleyball lines (see map).
- There are three sections (see map):
- Left: barons square (losers square)
- Centre: princes section (neutral section)
- Right: king of the court (winner section)
- All students stand in the middle section.
- With a signal from the teacher the game starts.
- All pupils have to try to tap/strike the ball of another pupil out of the box.
- If you succeed you move one square to the right.
- If your ball is knocked away you move up one square to the left.
- If you hit/tap someone's ball out of the box on the right you score a point.
- If your ball is knocked out of the winner's box you lose all your points.
- If your ball is knocked out of the left box nothing happens and you stay standing.
- When the teacher gives the final signal the person with the most points is king of the court and he/she has won.
