How to Play

Choose your ball-American football or soccer ball.

The aim of the game is to kick or throw the ball from the marker and try to knock down your opponents pins. Any kicking or throwing style can be used.

A match is made up of frames. A frame is completed when all the pins are knocked down. The team that knocks down all their opponents pins first wins the frame. The team that wins the most frames wins the match. A match is made up of 5 frames.

In the final frame, if the player that is losing, is making the last kick/throw and knocks down all 10 pins the game is tied no matter what the score is from the previous frames. The match then  goes to a play-off.

Play-off: A single pin is placed on the lane. The first person to knock the pin down wins the match.



Each player has 20 seconds to throw/kick the ball. The 20 seconds starts from when the opposing teams kick/throw has come to rest. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession.

Players must kick/throw from behind and between the markers. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession.

Players cannot interfere with the kickin/throwing of the ball or interfere with the ball contacting the pins. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession
