The game of stoolball, over 500 years old, is the forerunner of cricket. It's played on any grass area with an (official) 90 yard diameter boundary. The pitch should ideally be16 yards long. Bowling is underarm from a bowling crease 10 yards from the batsman's wicket and teams consist of (officially) 11 players - either ladies or mixed. Stoolball doesn't need an immaculately maintained pitch, which is great for ad hoc casual events in the park.
The wickets are wooden boards on stakes and the ball, aimed at the wicket, does not hit the ground before reaching the batter. Teams usually have eleven players, with one team fielding and the other batting. The bat is the shape of a table tennis bat, made of willow with a long, sprung and spliced handle. The scoring and rules are similar to those of cricket, with the batting side defending the wickets. There are runs, boundaries, catches and run-outs, and also body-before-wicket (BBW). But there are eight balls in each over - two more than in cricket
