The new sport of Trangleball(R) was created by Mark Miller of Brooklyn, NY, and perfected in 2005. Trangleball is a 3 vs. 3 game played in a circular field (36 feet in diameter) that is divided into 3 equal sectors. A hard plastic 3 sided pyramid is placed in the center with each panel facing a different sector. 2 opponents play in each of the 3 sectors where running, catching and passing a ball to each other and the rebounding the ball off the pyramid "TRANGLE" becomes the strategy.


Trangleball is played on hard court and grass as well as sand. Tournaments are played on the beach.

Play occurs between the long line (outside circle), short line (inside circle) and the (3) sidelines. One player from each team stands in their own sector along with an opponent. The player must stay within the designated boundary lines of their sector.

Standing stationary on either the left or right side of their sector, the server begins play by rebounding the ball off the Trangle. The ball must hit the side of the Trangle that faces that sector.

The rebound must be caught or touched by the opponent, or land within sector boundaries, to be considered a fair serve. After a rebound, the opposing player in that sector must catch the ball or deflect it to a teammate who must make the catch in their own sector.

A player catching the ball has the option to either rebound or pass the ball directly to a teammate. The player may pass or rebound the ball before or after they run. A player carrying the ball is permitted to run only in one direction (left or right). A maximum of three passes are permitted between rebounds. After a rebound passing may resume.

When the serving team loses a volley, the opponent becomes the serving team. Only the serving team can score. Scoring occurs when the opponent either:
