HAND POLO





A game played with a tennis ball in which two opposing sides of six

players each endeavour to score goals by striking the ball with the

hands. The ball must be struck with the open hand. In play, the

contestants oppose each other by shouldering and bucking and in this

way the game can be made a dangerous one.



The goal is made into a cage form 3 feet 6 inches square. At the

beginning of the game the ball is placed in the centre of the playing

surface and the players rush for it. The umpire in hand polo is a very

important official and calls all fouls, such as tripping, catching,

holding, kicking, pushing, or throwing an opponent. Three fouls will

count as a goal for the opponents.
