brand 'em bunny

The only game I despised more than french cricket when I was growing up in Central Western NSW in the 60s was an appalling torture called "brand 'em bunny". This consisted of a child (usually me) desperately running around and trying to evade tennis balls which were being thrown with great force, at my person, by all the other kids in the one teacher school we attended.

Contributor's comments: As a boy in Dubbo it was also known as "brandies." Wetting the tennis ball made the impact more fun for the thrower.

Contributor's comments: Growing up in SE Queensland, we always called that game brandy.
