VX ball field
The venue is simple, generally only a long venue is needed. One-on-one battles are as big as a squash court; team battles [5 versus 5] require an 80-foot X 150-foot court, which is no bigger than a basketball court.
VX ball rules
The VX ball, which emerged in North Yorkshire, England in 2006, combines the characteristics of dodge ball, club tennis, tornado ball, and canoe. Its rare double-headed club design tests the player's right and left hand coordination. The "V" and "X" of the VX ball represent the "5" and "10" in the Roman numerals, which means that 5 balls and 10 players are required for the game.
VX balls are generally played in a 5-on-5 format. However, due to the limitation of the venue, the singles "V2" and doubles "V4" have evolved. The former uses two clubs and 3 VX balls. One-on-one matches, while the latter uses four clubs and four VX balls for a two-on-two doubles match. Participants need to snatch and hit the VX ball to the opponent’s neck or below the body part, and can also use the club to block the opponent’s shot or catch, and successfully hit the opponent to get 1 point. Three points are awarded for the opponent's shot, and the team with the more points within the time limit wins.
Use the cue to score, the higher scorer wins.
If the opponent's shoulder or body parts are hit by the ball: 1 point.
VX balls that bounce the ground, bounce the wall, and roll the ground will all be judged as a hit.
The cue stick and the wrist holding the cue stick are not counted as scoring parts.
If you can use the cue stick to follow the VX ball thrown by the opponent before the VX ball bounces or hits, you can raise the cue high and call "CATCH", 3 points are awarded.
Those who are hit must raise their hands to indicate to the referee, and the player who raises their hands will not be hit to score.
If you use a club to attack an opponent, move the ball for more than two steps without dribbling, fail to raise your hand and call YES after being hit, or make any ungentle behavior, your opponent will get 3 points.
