  • Notice the yellow line.

  • You must throw the ball off the frame, and make it land outside the forbidden zone.

  • You can attack either of the two frames.

  • You are not limited to one end of the playing fieldlike most sports.

  • It’s the other team’s point if..

    • the attacking team throws the ball out of bounds because they missed the frame.

    • your ball bounces out of bounds after it hits the net.


Defend against a point

  • To prevent a point you can catch the ball as it is bounced off the frame.

  • Notice the five people to the right. They are in a defensive position to catch the ball to defend against being scored on.
