Jai Alai comes to mind as does Lacrosse. Squash and Raquetball are 2 more not too popular sports that use balls. Field Hockey and Hurling are 2 more. Rugny isn't too popular in North America.

Ha ha, yes, I thought of Mad Men, too.

I'm just thinking it will be weird and possibly construed as funny if I give my friend some obscure balls for her birthday. Yes, I'm out of ideas for real gifts.

Bowls, marbles, jacks

Ok, the latter two might be more considered games.
