Brace yourselves for a larger than life experience! This Jumbo Volleyball activity is riddled with fun and excitement where teams have to manoeuvre a ball with a diameter that is close to double the size of an average human.

Group Size: 60 -200 (20 – 25 per team)
Activity Time: 30 – 35 minutes
Preferred Setting: Outdoors
Neuron Activity Level: Light
On one hand, this activity aims to instil the importance of team collaboration, working towards a common goal, communication and problem-solving skills. On the other hand, the fun and thrill of the task jolt members out of their boredom. They come back to work completely refreshed and energised.
Right from being able to hold the jumbo-sized ball to steering it, this activity cannot be executed without the willing collaboration of the team members. The contribution of each member is extremely valuable in executing the task. Members realise how powerful team collaboration can be in getting the desired results. This learning gets carried on to the office scenario as well.
Communication is necessary for a stellar performance, without which the desired results cannot be achieved. This activity demonstrates the significance of communication in successfully completing any given task at hand.
When participants collaborate with each other towards the common goal of emerging victorious and also enjoy doing so, it nurtures team bonding and the spirit if comrade's.
During the execution of the task, unexpected problems may surface. A winning team is the one which is able to work through the problems and solve them effectively keeping the end goal in mind. The activity showcases that problems are a part and parcel of any project, but how you work across it makes all the difference in yielding results.
Healthy competition is always good as it pushes the participants to bring out their very best to complete the task at hand. It shakes them off their complacency and makes them alert.
