Nivsta Boards. A tennis ball, rebound game. NIV IT NOW.

A game with Skills and Values.

The Nivsta Boards are in four different Countries.

England, New Zealand, United states of America and Australia.


Four Sets of Rules.

7 different colours.

Nivsta Boards can be screwed to the playground floor.

You can play,

One v one



Two v two


With one tennis ball, between the two or four of you.

Or one v one with one tennis ball each, if you miss hitting the Nivsta Board with your throw, collect your own tennis ball then continue playing. First to complete the rule is the winner.

If you drop the rebound catch you are still on the same,





For your next turn.

If the chalked Rules are to easy, just chalk them further away from the Nivsta Board.

Carry it cooperatively.

You may be thinking your playground is too small for fifteen Nivsta Boards, Nivsta Boards offers thirty, $1,500, twenty $1,000 and ten $500, groups of children per Van Franchise time.


Part of 30 children Van Franchise time.

Coming soon at the end of the Programme dip the ball in paint, throw it at the Board. Each child has a turn. The Board is wooden, it gets a tennis ball paint job by the children.

Part of the cost for the Van Franchise is this unique idea, all fun and the wooden Nivsta Board is free inclusive of the Programme cost for the School.

Reference Quotes.

“There has been considerable change in behaviour for many children as a result of the Nivsta Boards. We are use to seeing some games being popular for a short while and then becoming cast aside for something new but these boards are being used daily after three months with interest as strong as ever.”

London, England, Mrs D L Campbell, Head Teacher.

“This means the children are outside doing something physical whilst also having to engage their brains.
