"Last year we had seven teams, so we're hoping to match that or exceed that," said Ryan Dennison, recreation supervisor.

Team requirements are ages 15 and older, groups of six to 10 with at least two female players. The cost is $30 per person for those who register before Dec. 14, with a cost of $45 after that. The season will officially begin Jan. 4, and rosters will be frozen as of Jan. 25.

Each match-up will pit two teams against each other on the court for as many games as they can play within a 45-minute running clock. The rules are simple: players collect as many balls as possible to throw out the other side. Those hit cleanly are ruled out, while the thrower must sit if the intended target catches the ball.

All calls by officials are final.

Dennison said the activity is a great energizer for those stuck indoors during the winter months with the potential to also relieve stress and build a bond among teammates.

"It's an awesome time for the community, a lot of laughs," he said. "There's all different skills levels, some that were competitive, some just for leisure, and it was great to be a part of that."
