"Swingball"
Finally after two years in the making, the legendary untold story of sports glory is about to be revealed to the nation.
In 1984 two kiwi blokes were chosen to represent New Zealand in the LA Olympics.
The sport was swingball; the story was phenomenal…
…They won gold. They returned home as national heroes and soon became the biggest thing since those ridiculous kung fu shoes with the thin orange soles. But it was this ‘fame trip’ that would ultimately lead to their downfall…
…Swingball: a pole, a ball attached with a nylon cord, two bats and a dream.
Swingball is written and performed by comedians Rhys Darby and Dai Henwood. It is Directed by Jonathan Brugh of "Sugar and Spice" fame.
