Basketball Games Corner Ball

( Basketball, Physical Contest, Volleyball )

GROUND.–The ground is marked off into a space measuring at least twenty-five by thirty feet. This is divided across the center by a straight line. In the further corners of each half so made a small square goal is marked out there being two such goals in each court.

PLAYERS.–The players are divided into two even parties each of which takes position on one side of the ground and stations a goal man in each of the goals at the rear of the opposite side.

OBJECT.–The object of the game is to throw the ball over the heads of the opposing party to ones own goal men who are at the rear of the opponents court.

RULES AND POINTS OF PLAY.–The players on each side are not bound to any special territory within their own court but will naturally see that each of the goals at their rear is well protected and will try to intercept the ball before it can reach these goals. They will also of course try to throw the ball over the opposing party to their own goal men in the opposite court. No player may cross the line which divides the two halves of the ground. The goal men may not step outside of their goals. Any ball caught in this way fails to score. No opponent may step inside of a goal. When a goal man catches a ball he must at once throw it back trying of course to get it to his own party over the heads of the opponents who try to intercept it.

SCORE.–Every ball caught by a goal man scores one for the party throwing. The side first scoring twenty points wins the game.
