This fast paced 7-a-side or 6-a side game is perfect for you to satisfy that social or competitive drive and to get a team together. It is perfect for men and women, boys and girls to play in a team together, and more often than not, it's the women bragging at the end.
In this version, 6-a side, the court is divided into halves rather than thirds, and there are six players per team rather than seven. The team is made up of two centre players, two attack players, and two defence players. The two attack players are located in one half and the two defence in the other with the centre players running the full court excluding the circles.
Scoring is also different, with a successful shot inside the circle scoring 1 point and outside the circle scoring 2 points (much like 3-pointers in basketball). Because of the 2-point line this changes the game play significantly, with the attack players working to set up the centre players for the 2-point shot.
Once a goal is scored, a defence player from the opposition team takes a throw-off from the top of their circle. This makes the game even faster as the ball doesn't have to be sent back to the centre third for a centre pass like 7-a-side.
