In 2001, Brad Jamison of Enter Play Sports, Inc. created the first Birdball—a playball for his daughters that wouldn’t roll down the sloping hill by their home in Springtown, Pennsylvania.
The Birdball is an oversized badminton birdie, originally devised of turkey feathers attached to a soft foam ball -- evolving into a super-lightweight structural composite using a “chain-link” fiber pattern, infused with epoxy and integrated into the foam.
Using the Birdball, inventor, Brad Jamison, developed Fairgame to practice agility, physical discipline, sportsmanship, and the importance of perpetually challenging oneself.
Fairgame -- a powerful, graceful sport that’s been described as “martial arts meets footbag.” Fairgame is played in a court. that consists of adjustable rings that are sized to the height of each player, and considerate of physical limitations.
In Fairgame two players ralley the birdball back and forth using kicks, punches, head, knee and elbow hits.
