The sport of Hooverball has found it’s way to San Francisco.
Hoover-ball is a medicine ball game invented by Herbert Hoover‘s personal physician to help keep then-President Hoover fit. In general, the game is played on a volleyball type court of grass or sand and involves throwing a heavily weighted medicine ball over the net. Officially, in Hoover-ball, the medicine type ball weighs about six pounds, and is thrown over an eight-foot volleyball type net.
