Kick Tennis

Players attempt to kick the ball into the oppositions square. A point is awarded if the ball hits the ground in the opposite team’s square. If the kick lands anywhere outside the square a point is awarded to the opposition. After a player takes the mark they must handball to another player in their team to kick the ball, sharing the kicking.

Once 10 successful kicks are achieved the game starts again, rotating defenders.
