  • Short Summary

    Strange game played by two teams of French girls - pushing around a huge ball.

  • Description

    "Pushball used to be a man's game - until Eve took an interest." M/S of a group of girls, some wearing stripy football shirts standing beside, and sitting on, a very large ball. "These are French girls, and you should hear the volleys of French - part of the game."

    The two teams of girls rush towards the ball and start pushing it around a field. "The Pushers - Voila! The Pushees - O, la, la, la!" Various shots of the girls enjoying this bizarre game. They run towards the camera pushing it, hold it aloft, climb on top of it, and generally have fun. M/S of the girls struggling with the ball near a goal post. One team pushes it through the posts.
