- Two people stand about 6 metres apart and the third person goes in the middle - this person is the "pickle in the middle"
- The two players on the outside throw the ball to each other while the one in the middle tries to catch it
- If the ball is dropped, any of the three players can get it
- If the person in the middle catches or recovers the ball, the person who was the last to throw is now the "pickle in the middle"
Be sure to find a suitable and safe place to play like your street, garden or local park
