What It Takes to Play the Ultimate Game of WhirlyBall

Last updated 5 years ago

WhirlyBall is one of the most exciting party and event destinations in Illinois. Before your first visit, brush up on the special equipment needed to play the exciting sport of Whirlyball:

  • Official WhirlyBug: The WhirlyBug is easily the most iconic piece of WhirlyBall equipment. These fast and furious vehicles are the perfect ride for an intense WhirlyBall game, because the controls allow the carts to instantly face any direction. Maneuverability is critical in WhirlyBall, which is why the WhirlyBug is designed to deliver. WhirlyBugs also come equipped with seatbelts for extra safety.
  • WhirlyBall Scoop: Playing a game of WhirlyBall is impossible without this key piece of equipment. Our short plastic scoops are expertly designed for catching, throwing, and blocking. Many veteran WhirlyBallers bring their own customized scoops to the game—but be sure to check with the referee before using any homemade gear. If it’s your first time playing, don’t worry: Every WhirlyBall center has numerous scoops ready on the rack.
  • Whiffle Ball: Without a whiffle ball, WhirlyBall just wouldn’t be the same. Standard-sized whiffle balls are used for passing and scoring. Their light weight make them perfect for bounce passes, cross-court pitches, and intense rebounding. Don’t worry about bringing your own whiffle ball, as WhirlyBall referees keep them close by.
  • WhirlyBall Court: The last thing you’ll need for WhirlyBall games is an official WhirlyBall court. These 50’ x 80’ electronic floors can only be found at WhirlyBall centers in Illinois. WhirlyBall courts include two color-coded backboards that match each team’s WhirlyBugs, so players know which goal is theirs.  Every WhirlyBall court will also require a WhirlyBall referee—these seasoned professionals manage the game and educate players on the rules.
