Street game invented by P-23, Shawthing n Bizzy B From Plymouth, Devon, England, UK.

Tackle Ball full contact version basketball, but dribbling is not allways necessary. Contact tackling is not permitted the scoring area!
The hoop is on a cage rather than just a back board, making it possible to cage rebound passing. Tackle Ball permits you to go back court.
Tackle Ball is a three or five player sport, the 3 positions are: shotcaller (allowed to kick aswell as throw) who generally plays deep defence, speed demon (winger, fast and throws lots of rebound shots) free role, defends and attacks constantly (2 speed demons in 5 man matches) and finisher (guy who generally scores most points an whose aim is to finish off plays) plays up the field most of the time but does defend if called upon (also 2 of these in a 5 man match)

Tackle Ball has plays of 30 seconds long in which they must finish a play, if not a turn over is granted to the other team. Tackle Ball is a free role game so even when a player is tackled the game carries on unless seriously injuries ocure on the field!

Point scoring system generally the same as basket ball, but 2 pointers can be risked, a free shot is taken from the 3 point line, if scored the team gets 3 points if missed they only get 1 rather than the original 2 points.
