Originating in Ireland, but now played all over the world, the most popular versions played in Asia are 7, 9 and 11-a-side games which are fast-paced and exciting for both players and spectators alike. Rugby-type goalposts are used and scores are attained by scoring a goal (similar to a soccer goal) worth three points, or a point, by kicking the ball over the cross bar (like a rugby conversion – except that a point may be scored from open play). The ball must be punch-passed or kicked to members of your own team. When defending, one hand may be used to get the ball out of another player’s hands.
