There are two variations of Bailongball: Soloplay and Multiplay. Find out more about the variations in these short explanations.

Bailongball – Soloplay

Soloplay is all about you and your racket. With flowing motions you make the ball resist gravity, using centripetal force and centrifugal force. Your swinging keeps the ball on the racket, preventing it from falling to the ground. Doing so, you can let your imagination run free, “dancing” to your favorite music.

There are three disciplines you can play solo:

Standard forms: They are about predefined movements you make, guided by music.

Freestyle: Your choice – you are free to choose your moves and music. 

Formation: Soloplay in a group – that is a formation. You move in sync to a standard form or Freestyle.

Bailongball – Multiplay

Play this variant with any number of people you like. You pass the ball without hitting or smashing it. Multiplay is also about flowing moves because you receive and release the ball in a swinging motion. It is a wonderful play experience.

Choose between three disciplines:

Freestyle: Play the ball without field limits or a net and with at least one partner. Include Soloplay elements if you like. 

Cooperative: This discipline you play on a TBB-court over the net. Your partner and you try to collect as many points as possible within two minutes.

Competitive: As with Cooperative, you play the ball over the net. The difference: the players compete, playing against each other for points and sets.

Compete Mini

This is played 1:1 in two fields of equal dimensions. You play all balls in a circular movement to your opponents field. You score one point for every ball your opponent cannot return to your field. Every point starts with a serve swung from anywhere in the field. You may not leave the field while the ball is on your racket. If you do, your opponent scores one point. You also score one point if your opponent releases the ball in a descending trajectory, does not play the ball in a circular move or stops the ball to reverse a circular move.

Cooperate Mini

You and and your partner play together on one quadratic court. Within a 30 seconds play you try to pass the ball in as many different moves as you can. Every distinct swing of the ball to your partner counts 1 point as long as the ball does not fall to the ground. Every successful pass after your tenth distinct swing of a play counts two points. In a tournament, you can compete against other teams. The team that scores most points in three 30 seconds plays, wins the tournament.
