Gateball is played on a rectangular court 20-25 meters long and 15-20
meters wide. Courts are generally grass, but can also be clay, gravel or
concrete. Each court has three gates and a goal pole.
The game is played by two teams (red and white) of five players.
Each player has a numbered ball corresponding to their playing order.
The odd-numbered balls are red and the even-numbered balls are white.
Teams score one point for each ball hit through a gate and two points
for hitting the goal pole. A game of Gateball lasts for 30 minutes.
The winner is the team that has the most points at the end of the game.
Gateball is a sport which combines brain play and mild phiysical exercise.
Gateball which is played whenever, wherever and with whomever possible,
is making a significant contribution to fostering international friendship
among people, transcending national borders and cultural differences.
