Gateball is a team game, and the green is much wider than in croquet. Gateball is usually played up to 5-a-side, where you score points by hitting the balls through 3 hoops with mallets. Nevertheless, Gateball is equally fun with 2 (or 1)-a-side.
Balls are numbered from 1 to 10, with one team playing even numbers, the other team odd numbers. Each player hits only the ball with their own number, and all players take turns in order. Each time you are called to play, you have just 10 seconds to do so.
The winning team is the one with the most points after the regulation playing time of 30 minutes.
If your ball hits another, you place that other ball against your own, hold the two balls under your foot, hit against your own ball and drive the other one away. You then hit your own ball again.
Likewise, if you run a gate in order, you then hit your own ball again.
Only the person called upon to play (and the umpire) is allowed on the court at any one time.
