As you can see the rules are pretty simple. Ladder Ball has been compared a lot to horse shoes in many ways.
While the rules are pretty simple they can also be adjusted to make the game move along if you have a larger group playing with teams waiting in the wings. Just skip the whole one cancels out the other rule and play to 21 or even less to keep the game moving.
This game is also appropriate for almost all ages and again, can be adjusted for younger players by moving the Ladder targets closer together.
Originally I remember trying to find this game and I didn’t know what it was called. Some Call it Ladder Ball, Ladderball or even Ladder Golf. Ladder golf probably has to do with the bolas which look like golf balls with a string in the middle.
