Numbers have been down somewhat, due to health problems and migrating to warmer climes for our winter. Except, the way we play, we create our own micro-climate, especially if we play half court, which is pretty hilarious!! We usually have a 12 person team but can play with as few as 6 if necessary. If that is the case, there is no need to play full court, so we play half court, and dictate how many throws must be made before the ball can progress to the next stage.
It sounds very complicated, but once we are aware of the adaptations, it is quite easy to follow.
Because these adaptions can be organised at a moment's notice, the number of players we have is irrelevant really. We simply organise to play, whatever the number.
And playing half court gives us all a real workout, keeping both the body and the brain working in unison, such that we all feel very satisfied with our day's work.
May we live forever!!!!!!!
