The game is played with two teams consisting of four players. This is called a "regu." There are three people on the court and one standing sideline for reserve. There is the back, who stands at the back, the right inside and the left inside, who stand on the right and left sides, respectively. It is played on a court with a net about the size and height of a badminton net, with a circle drawn in the middle of both sides. A semi-circle is drawn on around the posts of the nets.
