The ball-game was played in a
large courtyard with a high wall around it.
was narrow in the centre and wide at each end. In the centre of each side was a
ring-shaped stone with a hole in the centre.
The players were in two teams, one at each end of the
rubber ball was placed in the centre. Points were scored for
moving the ball past the other team into the wide part of the court. The ball could only
be moved with hips, knees and elbows.
If one team got the ball through the hole in the ring stone,
they won the game... it's said that the losing team lost their heads!!
