Set up a drum kit in your front garden and play it in tune to the beat of the bouncing ball.

:lol:

Maybe in all that time he's never visited the Snug. Maybe he thought this was KUMB's answer to dear Deidre.

Didn’t someone here say they made amps? Midnight every night at 100db play a recording of a bounced baketball on repeat.

Or go the extreme route, ask them to try and stop him playing at whatever hours it starts getting on your nerves?

Noise from neighbours can literally drive some people to murder. Not advised though.
Can you & other neighbours (safety in numbers), get together & make friendly contact with the kids parents (if you think they're fairly normal)?
Explain how you understand the kid wants to practice but that to do it for long periods or at early or late hours, is a bit anti-social for a lot of the neighbourhood. Maybe suggest a time (or amount of time) that he could do it & a reasonable compromise may be possible.
If this isn't possible or goes tits up, the next approach is to try to contact your local authority for advice.

Nobody has suggested getting him to kick the ball rather than bounce it like a girl. That's why we're ****ed as a nation.

Take your dog / friends dog if you don't have one.

Biggest you can get hold of, offer to walk it every day. Make sure pooch saves the biggest dump of the day for the neighbour's driveway.

You will then hear thud thud squelch, some cursing, followed by silence.

Wait until it's dark, and cover their driveway in PVC glue and then chuck down shitloads of drawing pins. When he bounces it the ball will burst.

No when accepts , tell him that the game is for the court like in American History X.
Make sure you dunk on him a couple of times at least, clearing him out on the way through Karl Malone style.

Next time he's out there shoot it with a crossbow from across the street. Doesn't matter if you hit the ball or the boy, either will do. As the crossbow is quiet this is a stealthy option and noone will know where the shot came from. :thup:
