Hello everybody

I know that something has been done about children's play but I would like to be sure how you translate 'balle au prisonnier'. Is it 'dodgem' (I know that it's also les autos tamponneuses)?

[...]

Thanks in advance.

    Yes!! It's a real sport, it's even quite popular in schools... I mean, a big percentage of children are supposed to know and play it.

    Well then, it's not spread (there are no serious championships throughtout the world!). I wouldn't say it's an official sport, but a children game that can be classified as a sport, instead.

    I don't know the popularity of this game in Germany. I can only say that in Spain and France is quite popular.
