The wild, whacky world of Whirly Ball plays in Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ROSWELL, Ga. -

What do you get when you mix basketball, hockey and jai alai with …. bumper cars? An incredibly exciting game for kids of all ages! And, it's right here in Roswell.

It's called the world's only "totally mechanized team sport.' And, while whirly ball might at first seem like an odd hodge podge of somewhat-unrelated athletics, the sport recently held its own official national tournament. It did so in Atlanta!

Hoping to get you to embrace the whirly, Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken took a walk on the wild side – rather, the ‘whirly' side. He needed look no further than Whirly Ball Atlanta in Roswell. It's located at 5130 Commerce Parkway and is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
