Attacking & Defending 1

  • Process

    Two players build a pair and each pair has one ball. The players spread pairwise across field, keeping enough distance to the next pair. One player of the pairs is on the ball and has to defend it against his opponent. Change the rolls after a short period of time. As a variation you can limit the playing fields for each of the pairs.
