-Setting Up:

  • Place each team’s pins at the back of the end zone

    • No players may go in this area accept to retrieve a ball.

    • Front of the end zone line should be far enough forward so that if defense totally blocks a pin, a ball can be thrown over the defense.

  • Each team is given their colour balls to begin.

  • Players are in a scattered position on their half of the court

-Instructions:

  • At the leader’s signal to begin, players attempt to knock down their opponent’s pins.

  • Players may cross the centre line to make it easier to knock a pin down. However:

    • If players cross the centre line and are hit by a ball, those players are eliminated from throwing balls at the pins and may only retrieve balls (on their own half) to give back to their teammates.

  • •First team to knock down the other team’s pins is the winner.
