The object of the game is to propel the ball through a suspended basket, endeavouring to get the opponent to drop, or fail to catch, the ball. Evolved by George Nissen in the USA in the 1960s, the game is based on training techniques adopted by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) astronauts.
