The game takes place on a steel walled floored pitch,160 feet long by 90 feet wide.
The walls are 30 feet high.
There is a goal at each end of the pitch and a ball warp tunnel in each side of the wall. Throwing the ball into the tunnel causes it to reappear on the opposite side.
The ball launcher, in the center of the pitch, rises at the start of each game, rotates,
then shoots out the ball in a random direction.
There are bounce domes, off of which the ball will be deflected, but over which players are free to move. These appear in different formats for each match.
