Volley Bowling

A ball sport with a difference - 20 pin 'bowling'.

Normal volleyball rules apply, except a single bounce is allowed. Also, each half of a standard volleyball court has 10 large (hip height) inflatable pins set-up. Bonus points are scored for knocking over the other team's pins, either by hitting them with a ball, or causing your opposition to knock them over when defending a shot. A ball out of court would cause the pins to be reset. A strike would finish the round and give you double points on the next service.

       I'm having trouble figuring out exactly where the pins are.

       (You talking to me? I was imagining someone trying to serve using a bowling ball - I completely forgot about the finger holes. Now the problem comes in returning a serve.)

       He was being funny. I got it. Though I'm not sure that I should have admitted it. Dry, engineer type humor.

       I thought a volleyball should be used, rather than a bowling ball :0) Then again, there could be an extreme version.   

       The pins are dotted around the court, retaining the triangular layout, just a little more spaced out.   

       I imagine that a strike might be a little difficult to come by unless there's a really long rally.

       //Dry, engineer type humor// I know of no other type of engineer humor.

       Ah, see, there it is again. :-)
