ARRRR - There be pirates about!! 29 Aug 2018 .

During the lunch break of the Random Doubles, with nothing else to do, Neil and Tony introduced us to a game of Pirates!

8 on court, using primary and secondary balls, 1 ball each, playing against each other.

Run a hoop - win 1 point

Hit an opponent's ball -- win 1 point , win (PIRATE) opponents points, win another hit.

Win 10 points then you can bank the points and start again.

First to 20 points is the winner.

All about attacking with long range hits and winning points then retreating and staying out of harms way when you have pirated points.

The lead changes hands all the time - great fun!

Pirate in Chief was David Palmer who was first to pirate 20 points.


Apologies - many of the images have loaded 90 deg out and I have not been able to rotate them - just turn your screen round for the upright shots until I can master this!
