Circle Rules Football

Sometime in the fall, I rode down to Prospect Park to shoot a game of Circle Rules Football, a team sport invented several years ago by Greg Manley. Since the sport’s conception, trying to put a giant yoga ball through the center goal of a circular field has become something of a Saturday ritual for many of my friends. Good Morning America was also there that rainy afternoon, shooting a segment on “new sports.” Though they all share a similar inclusiveness towards athletes and non-athletes alike, Circle Rules seems to stand out for not limiting the level of skill and competition at which the game can be played. I think the film crew felt this firsthand.
