Tap Ball Rules

Tap Ball is a sport created by Homer.


Homer created Tap Ball because he thought all other sports were boring, in particular Soccer. Whilst Homer understood the game, everyone else found it confusing. However, that didn't stop several people from playing the game.


According to Homer, the only equipment you need is:

  • Smartphone
  • Thirteen balls of varying size
  • Bats made of glass
  • Some chalk to mark the many end zones
  • A quaffle
  • Kevlar body armor
  • A greedy, narcissistic owner to screw it all up


At the start of the game's creation there were only sixty-seven rules, with sub-rules and clarifications. However, as time went on, more rules were added in. Some of the known rules are:

  • Rule one: a three-point shot is worth five points.
  • Rule two: attire is business casual, no underwear.
  • Rule three: with one minute to go in the eighth quarter, the score is always tied. So it's more exciting.
  • Rule four: punching, whether of opponents or teammates, shall be worth two runs.
  • Rule five: every player must keep both feet on the floor at all times. When running, a hand must also be on the floor.
  • Rule six: only the player with the ball may cry.
  • Rule seven: defense loses championships.
  • Rule twenty-four: no running over other players with a foreign-made car.

Arbitrary rules[edit]

In act three created Homer and Lisa some arbitrary rules.

  • Rule one: any player who isn't smiling gets ejected and receives a lifetime ban.
  • Rule two: when a player scores, the other team must congratulate her, and they have to mean it.
  • Rule three: if you like a boy on the other team, he has to like you back!
