A round ball is required (basketball is best but can play with football or maybe volleyball).
One player starts with the ball and tosses it towards the opposite kerb with the aim of landing the ball on the edge of the kerb, so that it bounces back in the direction that it came from (on the full, i.e. it must not bounce or roll before it hits the edge of the kerb).
If the player hits the kerb, she takes a step off the kerb, onto the road and towards the other kerb, and takes another go, until she fails to hit the kerb.
Once the first player misses the kerb, the other player takes her turn and so on, until one player reaches the opposite kerb, at which time she is the winner.
