Ilke Gers: Organised Game


Organised Game

0. Start on the near/far end of the court.
1. Enter the court moving over the blue path/green path.
2. Move to the opposite end of the court, crossing over the red path when neccessary.
3. If, while moving over the red path, you encounter a player moving from the opposite direction: stop.
4. Negotiate with this player to decide who will switch to the other’s pathway and move in the opposite direction.
5. If you switch: turn around and move back to the side of the court you started, over the green path/blue path.
6. If the other player switches, continue to the near/far end of the court.
7. When you reach the end of the court, exit the court and make a mark to add to the blue score/green score.
9. Follow the blue path/green path, around the outside of the court, back to start.
