Each teams is divided in two to play the opposing team = 4 teams. One pair of teams plays north / south (ie up and down the ice) and one pair plays east / west (across the ice). There are two colours of wiffle balls (4 of each colour)  one is used in the North / South game and the other colour is used in the East /West game. Teams can only touch the coloured ball that is used in their game. The nets are placed on the blue line for the north / south game and the same distance east west of the centre button. The games never ends because “goals” are removed from the net and put back into the game.
