Chasing Turn

Teams are made up of 9 players and 3 substitutes. Each team has a ‘Running Turn’ and a ‘Chasing Turn’. When ‘Chasing’, 8 players sit along the centre line, facing alternative directions. The 9th Chasers (Active Chaser) aims to catch an opponent, or gives Kho to transfer the status of Active chaser to their team mate.

Running Turn

When ‘Running’, players enter in batches of 3. Runners can run in any direction, however Chasers cannot. Once a direction is chosen by a chaser, they must commit to that direction or give Kho. When 3 of a batch are out, the next batch enters. This is repeated till time is up.
