PLASMABALL: A physical team sport with balls and goals, played in artificial free fall, with the “ball” being essentially ball lightning, controlled by electronic “rackets” wielded by the players. As a school sport it is as safe as any sport of this type–the players are required to wear protective armor. Professional players can elect to wear full shielding–which slows them down–or take the risk of playing with lighter shielding. Deaths are not uncommon if players elect to play with minimal shielding—ball lightning is dangerous!
