Now, fans can watch NERFBALL’s exciting and heart-pounding combination of paintball-style play with the speed and agility of basketball, all combined with buzzer beating shots and unbelievable highlight moments that took place at the first NERFBALL tournament on
The first official NERFBALL game comprised of four, 4-minute quarters, where the two powerhouse teams engaged in a heated competition in hopes of coming out on top. Athletes were each assigned a position – Defender, Midfielder and Runner – and used an official NERF PRO LEAGUE ball, NERF PRO STRYFE X blaster and NERF PRO darts to score points in two ways; shoot the NERFBALL through the net for six points or hit an opposing player with a dart for one point. In 2024, NERF will roll out hit detection gear with proprietary foam incorporating XO-Nano technology, giving players a way to detect dart hits in real-time.
“In 2019, we set out as a team on a journey to invent the first official sport of NERF and along the way created some of the most break frame technology to enhance the playing experience. Our vision for NERF continues to be to fuel the future of social active play & the launch of NERFBALL is one incredible milestone as we continue to build on that vision,” said
