The blue star is the batter, the red star the bowler and the pink stars are the fielders. The red star will bowl, making sure the ball bounces both sides. The batter uses a forehand to return. If none of the fielders get it then it is a point to the batter. If the fielders get it after one bounce then one point to them. If the fielders catch it the batter is out and you will need to rotate. The batter is also out if they hit the net, or they don’t hit the table when they return the ball! Remember to keep score!
