  • 3 balls in the centre zone and 1 ball with each team
  • When retrieving ball from the center line, you must move back past the 5 foot return line before being able to make your first throw. This is only valid for the beginning of each game.

Playing the Game

  • A game = 3 minutes
  • A match = best of 5 or 7 games as time permits
