Group challenge in the phase of getting to know each other

Description of the tool

Let the group stand in a circle. Get a watch to count the time. Then ask a group to throw a ball to a person, which had not received the ball yet, and remember the person you throw the ball at. The ball travels from one person to the other as if building an invisible net. In the end you receive the ball. Now, count the time, how long does it take to build an invisible ball net? Could the group improve the result?
