    Indoor soccer and indoor dodge ball are both fun.

    Gosh, haven't played that since high school! (We had intramural teams in college, but I never had the night free that they played.) It's a fun game (so is outdoor soccer). That's not to say I'm any good at it, but I have fun trying.

    And, yep, dodge ball is fun too. :biggrin: Ooh, how fun would it be to combine the two!

    Heh heh...that's why I'm no good at it, but definitely fun. It would be so cool sometime to get all the PF geeks together for a game...at least then we wouldn't have to worry about the jocks hogging the ball. :biggrin:

    Oh wait... did you mean on a court in a gym? I thought you meant in the house.

    :rofl: I thought dogdeball and soccer were creative enough as a combination...didn't realize you were adding an obstacle course to it too. :biggrin: I never even thought of soccer inside a house!

    You're probably just obeying your mother...

    "Don't even think about kicking that ball around inside the house, young lady!"

    Yeah, there was that too. Actually, it was more like, "Take it outside, NOW!" :rolleyes:

    Outdoor dodgeball? I think that would be a pain to play unless there were nets or something to stop the ball from going too far.

    I have never played indoor soccer, in fact, I don't think I have ever played soccer, ever! :surprised

    We played dodgeball both inside and outside (though more often inside...it was a good game to play for indoor recess on rainy days). If you have a big enough group of kids, the ball rarely escapes the circle, but if it did, yeah, it was a bit more exercise chasing after it.

    I used to play a little 6-a-side footy but stoped when i moved 2 years ago. I don`t miss it too much, rolling subs used to kill me. :eek:utabreathsmilie:

    Indoor soccer was fun, until I discovered hockey. Now that's fun!!

    It's OK, but the field is kind of small - I always like to be able to run 100 m :tongue2: - and 60 m seems kind of smallish. And I like the grass and outdoors. Of course, in the winter time with snow and subfreezing weather, indoors works. :biggrin:

    Oh yeah - the rules - http://www.misl.net/upload_images/mislrules05.pdf

    Indoor is fun but it's mostly a substitute for when outdoor isn't an option, usually the period when the ground is frozen. Though the group I play with typically manages at least 1 or 2 snow and ice games each year.

    The gym I play in has some nice corners and random obstacles that can make some interesting angles when you get to know your way around. I have a size 4 ball for kicking around my apartment in the winter as well. I've dribbled it past my girlfriend many times as she just rolled her eyes at me wishing it was summer and I would get out. Fortunately, outdoor has just begun for the season :smile:

    :rofl: Well, I need wide open spaces - at least 70 m x 100 m. :biggrin:

    Actually several sq km's is preferable.

    Maybe Montana!

    The skills you learn playing against your furniture directly translate to skills on the big pitch :wink:

    Nice open fields, yea I like that too. An advantage of unorganized pickup soccer- the sidelines can be declared to be the nearest busy roads, no matter how far they are :biggrin:
