Top / Sports / Tchoukball

An indoor team sport played on an indoor court measuring 27 metres by 16 metres. At each end there is a frame, a device similar to a trampoline off which the ball bounces, which measures one square metre and a semicircular D-shaped forbidden zone measuring three metres in radius. Each team can score on both ends on the field, and comprises twelve players, of which seven may be on the court at any one time. In order to score a point, the ball must be thrown by an attacking player, hit the frame and bounce outside the frame without being caught by the defending team. Physical contact is prohibited, and defenders may not attempt to intercept the attacking teams passes. Players may take three steps with the ball, hold the ball for a maximum of three seconds, and teams may not pass the ball more than three times before shooting.
