Rock-it-Ball is a fast-moving and exciting sport. Players use special poles with moulded scoops on the end (rock-its) to throw balls at their opponents to score points.
The game can be played in pairs or in larger teams and both indoors and outside. The number of balls used depends on the number of players – for example two teams of four players will use four balls. Teams of five players will use five balls etc.
Hitting your opponent with a ball scores one point but if the opponent catches the ball in their catcher they get two points.
