The ball that was used for the “ball-game” in Mesoamerica was in fact made of rubber. The use of rubber was important in the Olmec, Aztec and Maya civilizations of Mesoamerica.

Tarkanian and Dorothy Hosler note in Latin American Antiquity, the difficulty of producing a bouncy rubber ball from natural sap suggests that ancient Mesoamericans were highly-skilled material was produced in Mesoamerica as early as BCE.

Ancient Mesoamericans were the first people to invent rubber balls (Nahuatl languages: ōllamaloni), sometime before BCE, and used them in a variety of roles. The Mesoamerican ballgame, for example, employed various sizes of solid rubber balls and balls were burned as offerings in temples, buried in votive deposits, and laid in sacred bogs and cenotes.

The first record of ball games with the hand is from B.C. in Egypt. Their priests of the temple of Osiris in Thebes were depicted on the tombs striking the ball with the hand. Such iconographic evidence is also found in America where ball games formed an integral part of Pre-Hispanic culture.

The ball game goes back 3, years, making it the first organized game in the history of sports. Mayans loved the game and everyone played at various times, but it also held deep religious, ritual meaning. In English we refer to it as the Mesoamerican ballgame. This game, in various forms, dates back to around BC and is recognized as the first team sport ever played on earth.

It originated among the Olmec people in the lowland jungle forest areas of Mexico where rubber for the balls was cultivated from the sap of a tree. The game was played with solid rubber balls, which were manufactured from native rubber-producing plants.
