Ganymedes shown playing the game “hoop-bowling” Red-figure Bell Krater, The Berlin Painter. c. 490-480 BC
Hoops were used in Egypt around 1000 BC from grape leaves and were propelled around the ground with sticks. The ancient Greeks recommended their use for losing weight. Hooping was used in the 14th century in England but the physicians blamed it for heart attacks and back dislocations. The word “hula” comes from Hawaii around 1800.
