Original Slingball has been called many names over the years. Cowboy golf. Hillbilly golf. In fact, you may have played on a home made set at a family bbq or at the beach. The Neu Brothers have been playing Original Slingball for many years after being introduced to the game through friends. The difference being the Neu Brothers have added an additional rear cross bar and several other twists to enhance the game. They've also created terms for the many wacky things the Slingballs do while playing. Like horseshoes and bocce ball, Sling Ball is a game where 2-4 people play against each other and try to score by wrapping the sling balls around 4 sets of cross bars. The top cross bar is worth one point, the 2nd cross bar worth two, and the 3rd bottom cross bar worth 3 points. The rear cross bar is worth 4 points. Each person gets a three sling ball set and three tosses. The game continues until one player lands exactly on 21 points. The first player to land on exactly 21 points wins. Each of our Original Slingball sets are hand crafted with quality parts. Real balls, solid rope and schedule 40 pvc... Original Slingball is tough and durable. There are a ton of others in the marketplace, but if you want a set that is built to last, you want Original Slingball!
