Who's up for some fun winter games! I've created Twin Cities Ausball on Facebook & am trying to recruit some more folks interested in playing. It's a good, fun way to get in some winter exercise & maybe make some new friends.
What is Ausball?
Ausball is a lighter version of Australian Rules Football. Ausball is co-ed and there is no tackling involved so you don't have that problem of the big guy running over the smaller person.
Ausball is a co-ed, non-contact game based on Australian Football (which is NOT rugby). It’s kind of like soccer, volleyball and basketball rolled into one cool game where everyone gets to be the quarterback at the same time. Games are safe, fast and a whole lot of fun!
The ball is passed quickly from player to player by either handballing or kicking. There is no turnover rule, so the ball is almost always "live" resulting in a fast, free flowing game where everyone is involved. Scoring is usually frequent, so games are not only fun to play, but exciting to watch!
Rules are simple and easy to learn (it will take about 10 minutes) and NO EXPERIENCE is required. In fact, we encourage it as the game is designed for complete novices!
Here’s all the details:
Teams are 9 – a – side, with a minimum of 3 females.

Hope to see you there! Please let me know if you have any questions by either e-mailing me thru meetup, or posting here in the comments. Hope to see you there!
