Hoverball was a 24th century sport which used a small ball equipped with an anti-gravity device and small propulsion system. It was almost always played on outdoor courts. (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin..."; VOY: "Maneuvers", "Remember", "Unity", "Waking Moments")
The Risian Joval played with such a ball in 2366, and the ball flew around Jean-Luc Picard who was relaxing with a book. She excused herself and got into a conversation with Picard. (TNG: "Captain's Holiday")
