The game is played by two sides, each with two balls, and with the objective of both balls scoring 12 hoop points and a peg point before the other side. Extra strokes are earned by hitting another ball or running a hoop and so, with skill, a player can play a break that scores many points in a turn, as well as keeping the tactical advantage for the next turn. A top-class player can win a game in only two turns, though at club level a game comprises many turns and can take several hours to complete.
