The rules are fairly simple: Keep the ball airborne by using football moves (kicks, headers, etc.), do not touch the ball with the hands, and play it over the net separating the field towards the other team. If the ball touches the ground while in the possession of one team, the other team scores a point.
The field is separated by a net of 2.2 metres high, the field itself being twenty metre long (in total) and eight metres wide, divided in two halves of eighty square metres by the net. If played in a hall, the field is surrounded by three metres of clear space plus a ceiling of eight metres being above.
Teams are usually composed for four members, the Backliner, two strikers and one lifter.
