Ballex was developed in the 1980s as a fun learning aid for young children, but has since been adapted as an exciting (after-dinner) game for adults. Ballex is a game in which different coloured or numbered balls are competed for, in a fun way.

Ballex can be enjoyed anywhere, but is normally played in the home, or at venues such as the children's play group.

The children's version of the game is normally played between the ages of two years to six years of age, while the adult game can be played by anyone one from four years upwards. both sexes may play together, as may mixed age groups.

Anyone can play Ballex as it is an ability stretching activity. Adults must have the agility to crawl and roll on the floor, and the willingness to make a fool of themselves.

The children's game of Ballex involves the child or children being sent in to a confined pile (empty paddling pool) of mixed balls, to retrieve a specific numbered or coloured ball, this can be played one on one, or by a group of children.

The adult version of the game involves a person being sent into the group of balls to retrieve a specified ball, once located the ball must be retrieved using only a specified part of the body, eg under the chin or using only the back of the hands, the part of the body to be used is normally from a number of options drawn from a hat. Ballex can be played as a team or group game, and acceptable bodily contact is allowed and encouraged, as is laughter and horse play.

There are no organisations representing Ballex nor competitive potential, as Ballex is played purely for fun, and any competitions are on a one off local basis.
