ⓘ Balloon (game)

Balloon, balloon-ball or wind-ball was a game similar to the modern game of volleyball in which a leather ball would be batted by the fist or forearm to prevent it from touching the ground. The game was played in ancient Rome where it was known as follis - the Latin word for a leather bag. Such a ball made of leather was quite heavy and so protection might be used such as a leather gauntlet or wooden bracer.

Once rubber became available, modern players in Great Britain played the game with lighter balls of inflated rubber, so that younger children could play too.
