cestoball india

Cestoball is a team sport that is very similar to that netball, which originated in Argentina in the late 19th century. Two standalone net posts with baskets are stationed on the courts within the playing area. Players are free to move behind the net posts. The ball used is similar to that of a handball. A match is played between two 6-player teams in two 20-minute periods. Two players each must always be present in both the backcourt and the frontcourt at all times failing which results in a penalty. The objective of the sport is to score as many goals as possible by shooting the ball through the hoop. Players are not allowed to run with the ball. Balls have to be passed to move it up field.

Goals can be scored by shooting the ball from anywhere in the field. A field goal, which is shot during regular play is awarded two points, and free throws carry one point. The team with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
