Rock-it-ball
« on: Aug 03, 2009, 21:27 »
Rock-It-Ball is a fast moving combat ball sport, developed in North Yorkshire in 2005. It is now being introduced to a quickly growing number of schools in Great Britain and is supported by Sainsbury supermarket. Players of all ages and abilities and most disabilities can enjoy success at different levels. Teams are often mixed male and female. It is played by Rock-Iteers, using fast sports balls and ‘Rock-Its’. These are poles with moulded scoops on each end. There are 4 or 5 players in each team and there are 4 or 5 balls in play at the same time. The first club to be founded was "Tees Valley Spartans" in December 2006, which is the team my son plays for. Last year, the world championships were held in Thornaby Pavilion. Keith Chegwin is a famous rock-iteer.

Does anyone on here play or would anyone be interested?

Sounds interesting - a bit like Dodgeball ?

Sort of a mixture between dodgeball and lacrosse.
