The teams are made up of 5 players on the field, with 5 substitutes and 1 healer.
The 5 players on the field each have a single one handed weapon (see equipment).
Players start from their base line.
The troll ball can only be passed by hand – no kicking! Throwing is fine.
A legal tag is a hit by a sword. Target zones are as per HS standard rules.
If a ball carrier is tagged, the ball is placed on the ground.
A point is scored by getting the ball into the opposing teams bucket. After a point is scored there is a complete reset.
THERE IS NO BODY CONTACT!
The troll ball starts in the centre.
Both teams attempt to score a point by getting the ball in the other teams’ head bucket.
If a player is tagged, they must drop their sword and take a knee/sit down.
The healer then enters the playing field and must retrieve the sword to give to a substitute. A successful retrieval means the ‘dead’ player can be substituted. The sword is given to a new player and the tagged player leaves the field. Healers can be tagged by opposing players! If a healer is tagged they must leave the field for a 20 count then try again. Only one substitution can be done at a time.
Players can be substituted multiple times.
