Going Ball

Pronouced "Go- Ing", Going balls are now sold as Zoom Balls either as a toy or as an exercise aid. To work the Going/Zoom Balls each person holds two handles to zoom the ball backwards and forwards. It was also possible to fill the ball with water to make things a little more exciting.

The original GoIng was rugby ball shaped. Zoom Balls can still be found at seaside resorts on a small scale and new versions are now available including a round ball.
