The days we went to the car wash.

Year Sixes/Grade 5 can wear Monitor bibs for the games children names, waiting for a turn.

Maybe offer the younger children support in chalking the Rules & a hand on how to play them.

This takes pressure off Teachers Playground duties too.

Nivsta Boards is also a Franchise.

Four Sets of Rules.

7 different colours.

Nivsta Boards can be screwed to the playground floor.

You can play,

One v one



Two v two


With one tennis ball, between the two or four of you.

Or one v one with one tennis ball each, if you miss hitting the Nivsta Board with your throw, collect your own tennis ball then continue playing. First to complete the rule is the winner.

If you drop the rebound catch you are still on the same,





For your next turn.

If the chalked Rules are to easy, just chalk them further away from the Nivsta Board.

Carry it cooperatively.

You may be thinking your playground is too small for fifteen Nivsta Boards, Nivsta Boards offers thirty, $1,500, twenty $1,000 and ten $500, groups of children per Van Franchise.

How cool, every child that participates in a 30 children Van Franchise Programme gets a Nivsta scratchie. If he or she scratches a Mr Nivsta Mascot, he or she wins a free Nivsta Board. One in thirty, winner. 

Reference Quotes.

“There has been considerable change in behaviour for many children as a result of the Nivsta Boards. We are use to seeing some games being popular for a short while and then becoming cast aside for something new but these boards are being used daily after three months with interest as strong as ever.”

London, England, Mrs D L Campbell, Head Teacher.

“This means the children are outside doing something physical whilst also having to engage their brains.

Auckland, New Zealand, Liz Brotherton, Sports Co-Ordinator.

“Playing the Nivsta Boards

    are a great form of meditation.”   


“It could be included as part of any Mainstream or Special School PE lesson.”

I texted him a few days ago 2023 January,

I asked him why he didn’t sign me,
this was his reply.

From the 2002 Trial.

I wanted to, but I knew we didn’t have enough in the budget for a player of your quality. 2023. ( I waited 21 years later to ask him this ).
