HookBall - a new sport

HookBall is a new sport created by Matthew Watson and a friend in April 2021. They are from the USA. Hookball is a court-based game played on a basketball court, is 6 ft (or more) and is based on strength, speed, and it is also a good way to get exercise. It can be played as 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3, but both teams will have up to a usual 20 members.

Description of HookBall

It's a court based game played on a basketball court; the half point circle is the serving zone, then the square in front of the basketball hoop is the point zone, and then in between is the free throw zone. The attacker (server) will run back to his/her spot and then the opponet(s); then as each team tries to score points the defenders can block the ball, pass it to the attacker who then will step into the free throw zone and then throw it until (back, forth) until he/she scores a point or it becomes the opponets ball. Once a team reaches 10 points it's finished, that team wins and then they'd move on to the next round; but after each game both teams have to say thank you, shake hands as a sign of respect among each other for their skills, like I said in the summary it can be played as 1v1,2v2 or 3v3.  To fully understand you'd want to view it in person.
