How a teenager started Australia’s first downball league

Downball Australia started out as Noah’s year-9 project.

But when Melbourne’s COVID lockdowns forced schools into home learning, his plans were scrapped — and you couldn’t exactly play downball via video call.

“I feel the pandemic really hurt a lot of people, especially [those] who love getting physical, getting outside and into community sport,” Noah says.

More recently, Noah started up Downball Australia again, running incursions for local schools and even a big tournament in his community.

“I love it. I play recess and lunch,” he says.

“It’s competitive, it’s social and fun. I just love the atmosphere about it … the kids [go] nuts.”
