A place as energetic (yet refined), frenetic (yet sophisticated), and just generally baller as Silicon Valley deserves a sport to match. That's why the crew here at ZURB is so stoked to announce a new league, for a timeless sport. This…is Jugball.
Jugball is a sport dating back almost two centuries*, when Scots on the Highland Moors would make the hills echo with the 'boooonnnngg' sound of ball on jug. Dress kilts flapping, they would run from base to base (there's 3 of them) while the other team threw rocks, animals, and sometimes teammates at them to slow them down.
Times change, but the game stays the same. We're getting things started with a new, South Bay league for Jugball, and to get you as excited as we are we've got a site ready to record your interest in this epic competition: yourloveismyjug.com
Get in Uniform for a
Jug of War
We know it's not enough to be excited — you need to learn the rules, too. From the Juggernaut, who presides over the game with an iron...jug, to the Jug Dealer nobly distributing jugs to the batting Juggalo, Jugball is rich in ritual.
Fortunately Jugball is also complete chaos. Tag someone out with a nerf gun. Throw the ball at the Juggernaut and incapacitate them**. Someone brought their dog to the match? They're holding it while they bat. Ball went into someone's yard? Sneak in like ninjas, and deduct points from the team that shames their ancestors through discovery. It's up to you (and the spectators, and strangers)!

As the originators of this sport said, "Last person to sign up gets their wee brains dashed all over the moor by this jug. You 'ear me, Abernathy? I mean ye!***"* This is a lie.
\*\* Through laughter or humiliation, ideally. We don't recommend crippling colleagues.
