Basket Brawl is a recurring challenge that originated in Survivor: Tocantins, and has since reappeared in Heroes vs. Villains, One World, and Cambodia. It is a Survivor version of basketball, albeit more physical.
Held in a partially submerged field of water, three castaways (an equal number of men and women from each tribe) would battle for control over a ball. Once a contestant has acquired the ball, they must throw it into their tribe's respective net, which would score them one point. Every time a point is scored, tribes may swap members in and out of the challenge depending on the stipulation for the upcoming round. The first tribe to score three points would win the challenge.
