    Very vaguely remember playing with one at the beach.
    Maybe reading others will spark some memories.

    At like 7 years old,
    I used to enjoy paddling in the shallows of the ocean whilst hitting these around, was so much fun and can only wish that I had the people to do it with again

    I remember playing volleyball in a busy swimming pool when I was young. I couldn't stand up...

    My memory of beach-balls isn't particularly wide ranging, nor far-reaching. As a kid. I invested in the magic of the bucket and spade and constructed many sandcastles.

    I HAVE BEEN DEPRIVED OF SUCH OPPORTUNITY.

    I remember when I was at the beach, and I brought a beach ball from a hut nearby and it was my fave colour but then this little boy came up to me and he looked like he wanted it so I gave it to him I don't regret it though, he looked like he wanted it more and I didn't want to break his heart 😂✨

    Playing with a beachball with the lads. Somehow managed to miss and step onto it and did a half backflip with a bumpy landing. Still hurts thinking about that

    My first beach ball memory.

    A family holiday with loads of aunts and uncles and cousins when I was about 8 years old. But rather then play it at the beach, we were staying in a huge cottage next to stream that eventually went into the river severn. We used the stream as the 'net' and played over the stream on both banks. We played for about 2 hours, until the ball got into the stream never to be seen again. On the plus side, the image of 4 men who were, lets say, past their prime, running down the sides of the stream trying to get this beach ball is something that I wont forget in a long time

    I was about six when I got a beach ball; I was so happy.

    t was red and white. Very excited, I inflated it and took it out into the garden to try it out. A gust of wind caught it and it ended up in the rose bed - that was where it met its end. I was so deflated as was the beach ball

    I want one! Support Team beach ball game at results day next year ?
    I don't think I've actually ever played beach ball at a beach...although I have plenty of memories of doing it in an outdoor swimming pool from which you can see the beach if that counts? The thing about the swimming pool is that it constantly gets knocked out the pool which can get quite annoying as the game has to keep stopping (although using 3 balls at once can go some way to help with that one :lol:)

    Playing with my favourite one in the sea until I threw it a bit too far, passing it to my brother, and it drifted off.

    I've never actually seen a beach ball at the beach, only in the swimming pool. I think I even owned one once, but I'm not sure what happened to it. Yeah... I have no real memories of beach balls!

    Beachballs aren't a particularly big player in my life, they have never been. If someone were to ask me in a few hours what my biggest memory of beachballs was, I'd say the OP in this thread.
