What it is, is the most exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone.
Shots can reach the speed of a car on the motorway and players can run 5-6 kilometres in a match.
You can play this multi-skilled sport for fun or competitively.
Be part of the excitement.
