Ball spinning is fun to watch and do. It takes a little practice, but once you get the knack, you will probably find yourself playfully amused in the toy or sporting goods store.
In addition to ball spinning, one can also spin flat objects on one's finger, like trays, menus and plates.
There are no ball spinning associations. But ball spinning is often done by jugglers...and they have associations.
