Brannboll

What is branboll? If you have never heard of this game, it may be because you call it something else, such as slaball or brennball.

This game is similar in many way to baseball, rounders, and lapta. The term branboll comes from the act of catching a player stuck between two bases.

While branboll is played most commonly in parks and backyards across the common, there are also amateur competitions primarily in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. It is even part of the physical education curriculum at many schools.

While the rules of branboll differ from one area to the next, there are some basics that always remain the same. There is no pitcher in a game of branboll. Instead, the batman both throws and hits the ball. If the ball is hit, the person will run around the four basis.

Every year, the branboll world championship takes place in Umea, Sweden.
