Jewell Carpetball Stadium282 viewsRay Zetye says: I had an idea a few years back to build a more significant carpet ball viewing deck and we built one with a bunch of kids this summer. We took one of our existing carpet ball tables and placed it onto the new deck. It has worked great. I have attached some photos. You sit at the table to play so the table is low enough that kids standing do not get hit in the head if the ball were to fly up. (maybe in the crotch but that hasn’t happened yet :) (continued next slide)Nov 23, 2013

Jewell-Carpet-Ball_in-action258 viewsThe benches are higher than the table so all the kids sitting on them can still see but they are not hanging over the table and they are not reaching into the table. The benches also act as the “line” kids rotate in a circle around the table if that makes sense. I have counted 40 kids on one table at a time, they love it. Because kids sit across from each other they chat more while they are watching the game unfold too. Nov 23, 2013
