Gateball Information

Gateball is played using 10 coloured balls (1 to 10), with 5 odd numbered Red balls and 5 even numbered White balls. The balls are struck with a gateball stick (much smaller than a croquet mallet) through 3 gates in a set order and then finishing on a small round goal post in the centre of the playing area, on a lawn the size of singles tennis court. Gateball can be played as a singles, doubles or team (5 players on each side) game. Gateball is very popular in Japan and has become popular in many countries in the Asia/Pacific area. Our club can teach you how to play this fast moving and tactical game.
