How Stickerball Game is Played
The game is played by at least two persons. Each player wears a paddle (mitt) on the odd hand and advances the ball with the other. The paddle is worn on the fingers not the entire palm of the hand. The ball when thrown is caught on the paddle- the smoother side. The player should leave as much playing room between themselves for the ball to travel with force behind it. The farther the room to advance the ball between players, the better for the ball to have force to stick on the paddle. The ball shall not be caught except picked up from the floor/ground with hand. The ball is always caught with the smooth surface of the paddle.
