Beatball has a variety of patents in design across Australia, the United States and various countries around the world to protect its concept design.

Beatball has been developed to be played in a variety of ways:

Beatball VOLLEY

Beatball Volley is played with similar rules to volleyball but includes soccer techniques with feet, head, knees, shoulders and chest.

 

Services can be done by hand strike or by kick.

Ball headed and then kicked in succession by one player is counted as one touch. A ball touched by hand strike and then kicked, headed or by knee in succession is also one touch. No double successive hand strikes allowed.

Max 3 touches per team (a hand strike, knee, head, or chest touch coupled with a kick is counted as one touch. Only “one touch” is allowed per player.)

A ball slammed in or landing on the opponent’s trampoline mat zones on the full counts as a “bullseye” and wins 2 points.

 

Any part of the body that touches the net during defence or attack is out.

Ball touching the floor is out.

No intentional contact between players during play. 

Any ball that accidentally scrapes the arena roof during play is still counted as in unless "replay" is called.

Only one player is allowed in a trampoline zone at any time.

The remaining rules are as per Volleyball standard rules.

Player numbers for Pro Play at least 4 players per side.

Intermediate Play at least 5 players per side.

Social and Family Entertainment can accept up to 10 per side.

When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve. The side that wins the right to serve must rotate clockwise by 1 position prior to commencing serve.

Games are played until one team first hits 25 points with a clear lead of 2 points, a winning side must have at least a two-point lead if there is a draw at 24 to 24 to win a game. 1 set has 5 games, best of 5 games wins set. 

 

Any ball that lands outside the white boundary lines or hits a wall is out. 

Only the 2 players in the 2 trampoline zones receiving serve can attempt to block a serve by launching vertically in the trampoline zones. Blocking a serve at the net is not allowed by any other player.

A World-Class Facility that takes sports like Beach Volleyball - Indoor Beach Volleyball and Volleyball to another level of excitement.

Beatball CATCHVOLLEY

NEW RELEASE

Beatball CatchVolley is a team sport that had its inspiration from Beatball Volley but with much more simplified gameplay.

 

Similar to Beatball Volley and Volleyball but with a lowered net, simple rules and a larger, slower ball. 

 

A perfect introduction for juniors and beginners to learn the basics to progress their skills onto playing Beatball Volley.

 

Normally played with 5 or 6 or more a side, the more players, the easier the game gets and more fun it becomes. 

 

Catch Volley is extremely fun to play in teams and kids learn and master it very quickly.

 

 

RULES

 

Play starts with a serve from a player who throws or kicks the ball into play from their side to the other Team's playing area. 

 

Players try to catch the ball and throw the ball back over the net in the hope the other team drop the ball or it lands on the ground in their court area.

 

Players on the same team can pass the ball 3 times to each other before the ball needs to go over the net.

 

There are some variations to the rules that can be added depending on skill level of players for example, if a player knows how to hit, spike, head or kick the ball over the net on a volley, this can also be allowed. Normally the trainer can assess and adjust the game to suit the age and skill level of the groups playing.

 

POINTS

 

Play continues with a catch and a throwback until one team scores a point.

 

A point is scored when the ball is thrown into the opposing Team's side and lands on the ground, this is "out" and attracts 1 point. 

 

A point is also scored if a player drops their catch and lands on the ground.

 

If the ball lands in the opposing Team's side but on the red Trampoline Zone mat, then this is "Bull's eye" with 2 points won. 

 

The first team to reach 25 points wins the match.

 

AGE GROUPS

 

6 - 11 years, although many older kids and beginners enjoy playing this version as an introduction to Beatball Volley.

 

BENEFITS

 

A great introduction to Beatball Volley, teaches hand-eye coordination, faster reaction times, team building and is a great fun exercise.

 

It’s not difficult to see that tennis and Beatball Volley and Catch-Volley have their similarity; both involve hitting a ball over the net in the hope that the opponent won’t be able to return it. Much like Tennis, Beatball Catch- Volley requires short and explosive movements and cat-like reflexes, rather than long runs down a pitch.

Beatball SLAM

Slam is a new sport that crosses Badminton, Tennis and Trampolines. It uses specialised graphite bats and speed controlled plastic balls. Great for people who enjoy tennis and badminton and want to play them in a new innovative and challenging way.

Maximum 2 hits per side in volley format but never one-person touches twice in succession. 

 

(One person can hit or set the ball for the next team member to return the volley over the net) If the ball is hit into the opposing trampoline target mat zone, double points are scored. 

 

All other rules are similar to badminton.

 

Scoring rules are as per badminton:

A match consists of the best of 3 games of 21 points.

When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve, and its players rotate one position clockwise.

 

At 20 all, the side which gains a 2 point lead first, wins that game.

 

At 29 all, the side scoring the 30th point, wins that game.

Beatball DUNK

 

Beatball DUNK is an exciting new game developed by the team at Beatball which combines Basketball and Netball in one.

 

Our Beatball court (22 metres x 12 metres size) adapts to play Beatball DUNK.

 

Beatball Dunk is played with 4 on 4 teams / 5 on 5 teams in half-court or full-court layout with 2 or 4 trampolines. 

Dunk can be played as per Basketball rules or Netball standard rules. Adjustments to the rules can be made by the players prior to play.

After the ball goes into a team’s half and they win possession back, the ball must then make it back over the halfway line within 10 seconds or a penalty is issued.

After each successful basket, the ball is then turned over to the opposition.

A free throw is awarded from the free throw mark for any penalty.

The most goals scored at the end of the 2 halves wins. A digital scoreboard is provided inside the cage which is transmitted to the large scoreboard visible to all in the venue.

 

Ball has a 5-second rule and can be bounced as per basketball or can be played as per netball rules, this rests with the players to choose at the start of each game.

 

Goals can be shot from anywhere on the court while the trampolines can be used to propel forward or to obtain a height advantage edge over the players on the ground area, for passing or shooting for goal. 

 

Our air-cushioned patented floor surface provides a higher level of protection compared to hard wooden flooring used normally.

 

If your passion is Basketball or Netball this is a must-try for you and your teammates to throw down the Beatball DUNK way.

Ball

The Beatball Cage Soccer Ball is made of a special foam/rubber that is soft on impact but very stable for passing, bounce and kicking.

At kick-off, the ball can only be played backwards.

A goal cannot be scored directly from the kick-off unless the ball has been touched by another player from their own backline on route to goal.

There is a 4 second time limit on kick-ins, corner kicks, free kicks and goal-keeper clearance.

At the kick-in point, the opposing team must stand at least three metres away from the ball.

Players cannot play the ball if they have fallen to the ground. If this happens, it will result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opposition team.

NO SLIDING TACKLES, the goalkeeper is the only player who may slide for the ball as long as he or she does not use excessive force and they commence their slide inside their ‘D’ zone. Nonetheless, if a sliding tackle by a goalkeeper is considered careless, reckless, or carried out with excessive force, it is a direct free kick.

Any tackle that endangers the safety of an opponent is strictly against the rules.

There is no offside. Players can enter the goalkeeper's D zoned area and can score from any part of the court.

Goals can be scored directly from a corner.

The goalkeeper cannot leave his/her ‘D’ with the ball in his/her hands. If this happens it will result in a free-kick to the opposition.

The goalkeeper may leave the ‘D’ in order to save the ball as long as:

He/she does not touch the ball with his/her hands

He/she starts his/her slide within the ‘D’ area.

When Goalkeeper gets possession of the ball he can only kick pass it or throw it no further than the centre line of the court to put the ball back into play. If the Goalkeeper wants to throw it past the halfway line, he must ensure the ball bounces at least once in the defensive half of the court before the ball reaches the forward half of the court.

Players may not use their elbows or sweep legs or kick at legs in order to win possession of the ball. A warning will be given, and a direct free kick awarded to the opposition. If repeated warnings are given to the same player, then the offending player will be immediately suspended from the match.

Players shooting for a goal must be in their forward half of the arena.

 

The ball is out of play when:

Play has been stopped by the referee;

Players must refrain from kicking at or aiming at any player's head.

Play On

Play on if the ball touches, hits or rebounds off any obstacle within the Arena such as a net, padded post or wall.

Ball is in play if it hits the netted roof and rebounds back into play or if the ball hits any part of the Beatball Cage walls or wall nets.

Any ball that passes or bounces across the trampoline surface is play-on.

 

Penalty Kicks

Penalty Kicks are to be taken from the designated Red Line marker lines situated at each forward half of the Arena.

 

Duration

 2 x 10mins halves or 2 x 15mins halves with 5 mins break. The duration halves can be varied longer pending on session time and preference at the time of booking session.
