But over the years, the game has gained popularity and is loved by all age groups. In simple terms, the game includes hitting a ball with a mallet, through hoops or wickets. The game is easy to play and is enjoyed by both men and women. It is one of the traditional backyard games, played all throughout the Europe. The traditional version is played on grass or a court but with time newer variations for indoor play such as tabletop version are now available.
