A Brief History of Bullet Ball
Bullet Ball is an exciting tabletop sport requiring swift reflexes and precise shooting skills. Played on a rectangular tabletop resembling miniature ping-pong tables, the first player to hit their opponent’s triangular service area by hitting their ball into it wins the match.
Marc Griffin, the developer of this game, spent years perfecting it, even while facing devastating circumstances (including being humiliated on reality TV). Now there is a dedicated community around it and Marc stands as an inspiring figure who refuses to give up.
Invented by Marc Griffin
Bullet ball provides more than team building and camaraderie – it also serves as a great workout for the muscles! By strengthening thighs, quads, shoulders and increasing heart rate it makes an ideal sport for wheelchair users and people with physical disabilities.
Marc Griffin made an appearance on American Inventor to present Bulletball, a table game which combined elements of ping pong and air hockey. He invested everything in it – selling his house and even borrowing against his wedding ring to fund its creation – only for it ultimately be rejected by judges; but due to Marc’s emotional appeal it went viral and eventually gained widespread traction.
Now, Marc has seen tremendous success with his invention – featured at disability-friendly events like the St Louis Senior Olympics. Additionally, he’s written an inspiring book called ENDLESS DREAMS to share his journey; its message being that perseverance and faith can overcome any challenge or barrier in one’s path to their dreams. Now available on Amazon, its message should certainly encourage anyone reading its pages!
