This sport must not be confused with the fistball.
To be able to hit the ball, players surround their hand and their wrist with a strip of canvas or leather.
The teams are separated on the ground by a line ( la corde - the rope) which is mobile during the party. This new limit is shown by a chasse.
The purpose of the game is to gain ground by moving the rope. To do it, we try to make the ball "die" in the opposite camp.
Points mark by 15, 30, 40 and game.
Each 15 August at the Parc de la Hotoie ( Amiens ), the city receives the final stages of Ballon au poing.
