Gaga is a game that has many names! Gaga, Gaga Ball, Ga-ga, Octo-ball. Whatever you call it – Gaga is a form of dodgeball that originated in Israel in the 1970s and spread when Israeli counselors brought the game to summer camps around the world. Players start in a “pit”, an octagon shaped court, hitting and rolling the ball with their hand to eliminate other players. When players are hit below the waist, they are out-but players can always re-enter the game by catching a ball from the sidelines.
Gaga is a fast-moving and high-energy game that keeps all children active and engaged. Known as the “great equalizer” in playground sports, gaga requires no special athletic skill or ability and is enjoyed by children of all ages.
The Gagasphere is the only indoor facility in Northern New Jersey dedicated to year-round gaga play for kids and adults of all ages. Our three pits can accommodate any size group for game play.
