Best Ladder Ball Sets

Ladder Ball is a recently popular game in backyard, beach, and tailgate entertainment.  The sport combines underhand throws, three tier vertical targets and bolas in which to toss.  Ladder ball can be played one on one or with teams of two.  Point are scored by landing your colored bolas onto the rungs of the ladder target.  This game is often referred to as Ladder Golf or Ladder Toss as well.  


Ladder ball is a game for all ages and skill levels.  The skill is to find the right velocity and trajectory of the bola throw.  There is a lot of luck involved once the bolas start wrapping around the horizontal rungs.  Bolas will either remain in the rung or fall further down the ladder, thus scoring less points.  It's during this time when we find the ooh and aahhs coming from players and spectators alike.  For more rules, scoring and terminology, have a look at the Ladder Ball Rules and Play post.  

Yard and Pub Games play on all types of Ladder Ball sets, and there are some designs that stand out as both sturdy and stylish.  We've played on home-made sets of PVC pipe and real golf ball bolas, but  these sets featured below are certainly superior.  We hope you enjoy our list of quality Ladder Ball games.
