Gaga ball is a fun and fast paced variant of dodge ball played played inside a short fence like structure called a pit. Players hit a ball with their hands and are eliminated if the ball hits them on or below the knee. Youth groups and summer camps are huge fans of this game.
My first experience with this game was with a church youth group in Lakeland, Florida. I watched the kids play gaga ball in a pit made by the youth minister while they waited to be picked up from a laser tag event. I was inspired by how much fun the kids were having, I did a little research and started making gaga ball pits in Florida. Pastor Kendal later tested my prototype pit with his active youth group and they heartily approved my design.
The first gaga ball pit was the 32” featherweight. I later designed a 25.5” featherweight model, a permanent outdoor model and two all-weather models. My featherweight gaga ball pits are specifically designed to be ultra portable, easily to transport, easy to disassemble, easy to store and for easy set up indoors or outdoors. The featherweights are available in all weather or economy models. The permanent model is for stationary outdoor use at any time. All my gaga ball pits are designed to be affordable.
The 25.5” featherweight models have 6 or 8 panels, approximately 25.5 inches tall by 8 feet long.
The 32” featherweight models have 6 to 8 panels, approximately 32 inches tall by 8 feet long. This model has two entrance wall panels with a 6 inch cutout to ease entry and exit from the pit.
The permanent model is made with pressure treated wood and should be outdoors. This model has eight sides, is approximately 30 inches tall by 19 foot diameter. It has two entrance panels with an 11 inch cutout to ease entry and exit from the pit.
My featherweight gaga ball pits are sold in an all weather version or in an unpainted interior version in six sided or eight sided configurations according to your needs. My permanent pit is an eight sided version. It is delivered and assembled but is unstained and unsealed. Sealer or paint by the client is highly recommended to protect the wood.
A six sided pit is approximately 14 foot in diameter assembled. An eight sided pit is approximately 19 foot in diameter assembled. Pits can be custom sized to 6 or 7 foot lengths to better fit in your space if needed. Better sheathing is also available on request.

I travel from central Florida to DC monthly. Every July I do laser tag events for youth groups in NJ and PA. My In-laws live in Alabama. My three best friends live near Atlanta, GA, near Columbia, SC and in Northern VA. I can deliver to you, your church or youth organization for a reasonable delivery fee and sufficient planning.
