Title – Tennis Football
By – Sam Smith
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – 6-12
How to play:
8-10 players on offense and 8-10 on defense.
The game is played just like two-hand touch football except you are playing with a tennis ball and when you score a touchdown (6 points) you have to shoot the tennis ball in the basketball goal for the extra point (1), which equals a total of 7 points just like regular scoring in football. There are no field goals for 3 points and you only can get two first downs.
The field will be marked for the first downs. Everything is played just like regular football except it’s two-hand touch only. The game can be played in the gym or on a big field. If played on a big field, use trashcans for goals. Use two different color pennies or flags and cones to mark the field of play. A safety is 2 points and you can intercept to ball also. Use regular football penalty rules for fouls.
