1. The objective of this two player game is to rally back and forth across the game table with a ball and paddle. The “Alley" consists of the surface area of the three blocks and the four inch stripe that stretches across the middle of the table. The “Alley” provides a separation between the opponent's sides of the table, and serves as a neutral zone that is shared by both opponents. Shots can travel flat across the table between the "Alley", over the top of the "Alley", or ricochet off the "Alley" in random trajectories.
2. Multiple bounces and rolls are encouraged on either side of the table during the rally. The rally is concluded when a player fails to return the ball to their opponent's side of the table, and the ball falls to the ground.
3. Service switches every 2 serves. Serves are required to bounce or roll at least once on the serving player's side of the "Alley" prior to striking the opponent’s side of the table. Receiving players must let the ball bounce or roll on their side of the table prior to striking it, unless it bounces off of the Alley.
4. An “Alley shot” occurs when a player ricochets the ball off of any part of the Alley on a single shot. A "Tres-Alley” shot occurs when the ball ricochets off of any two Alley blocks on a single shot. Players that complete an "Alley shot" or "Tres-Alley shot" during the rally and ultimately win the point are awarded 2 or 3 points respectively. If an "Alley shot" or "Tres-Alley shot" ricochets back towards the executing player, they are responsible for returning the ball to their opponents side of the table. An "Alley shot" or "Tres-Alley shot" that ricochets off the side of the table at a right angle results in a redo of the point.
5. A shot that strikes any part of a player other than the paddle or playing hand, results in a loss of the point. Shots that come to a rest in the Alley result in a redo of the point. Shots that are questioned by either opponent result in a friendly redo of the point.
6. The first player to reach 23 points is declared the winner. A “Rumble” occurs when a player is leading 11-0, ending the game. Players must switch sides once someone reaches 12 points. House rules are strongly encouraged. Enjoy!
