Rules:

Each team has 6 players on the court at the start of a game.

3 games. Games last 2 minutes.

3 balls in the Dead Zone at the start of a game

At a game’s start 3 players from each team run to gain

possession of the balls. Balls must be taken or passed to

the back of the court before the first attempts are made.

 

The Leading team, in the game, has 5 seconds to throw

balls at their opponents, when it has possession of more

than two balls. Throws must be ‘Valid Attempts’. Leading

teams can retain possession of one ball.

 

When you catch a throw from an opposing player, they are

out and one of your players comes back in. Players are

allowed to fumble a ball while catching; but they must retain

possession at the end of the catching action, while remaining on

pitch, and without ball touching any other player or any other

ball, object or surface.

 

Catches bring players who are out back into the game in

rotation – FOFI (first out – first in).

 

You can use a ball in your possession to block a thrown

ball, but you are out if the ball is knocked from your hands

when you try to block the incoming ball.

 

You win a game by putting out all the opposing team, or by

having more players left on court at the end of the game.

 

Substitutions are allowed between the 2-minute games.

When an opposing player catches your throw;

When you step into the Dead Zone (hands/arms are allowed);

over a boundary line or on the opponent’s side of the court;
