Donkey Basketball

Never heard of Donkey Basketball? It has been a popular fundraising event in small town America since the depression. Ride real, live donkeys and play basketball while rasing money for your organization.=

You Provide:

  • Gymnasium or Outdoor Field
  • PA (sound) system
  • Scoreboard
  • A Master of Ceremonies
    • This person should be very comfortable with public speaking. Their job is to get the crowd going during the game and announce all the action! The right person on this job can add much to the success of the show.
  • The Players
    • All participants must be at least 16 years of age, no exceptions. We recommend four teams with six players per team. Every participant must sign a waiver (provided by Green Mountain Donkey Ball) and attend a pre-game players meeting. At the pre-game meeting, our team will go over safety precautions and the rules of the game with all participants. The MC is also encouraged to attend this meeting.
