Singles: players can use all parts of the body except the hands and arms, takes two players to play, one on each side of the net, serve distance should be at least 10ft to 15ft away from the net and only the server can score points. When the server loses the rally the defender now gets to serve and score points. Scoring the game – two games to 15pts, tie breaker to 11pts or make up your own point system. When you serve or return the footbag must land inside of the playing field or it’s out of bounds. Players can juggle the footbag, 3 consecutive times, using different body parts (minus hands and arms) before getting the footbag over the net if needed. Serving team gets 3 opportunities to serve and get the footbag over the net
Doubles: Same rules as singles. The only change here is there are 4 players. All players get to serve after the rally, so the serving team rotates server.
Kick-IT, Hack-IT, Smack-IT (KHS) Game: play singles doubles or cutthroat, every part of the body can be used for the game so Kick-it, Hack-it with any part of your body, or Smack it with your hands, no rules on getting it over the net, and make up your own point system or play to 15 points. Serving team gets 3 serves to get the footbag over the net.
You can make up your own game, get out and have some fun!

- Out of bounds is outside the imaginary line of 15ft x 10ft, so if the ball lands outside of these boundaries you either lose the serve or score a point.
- The footbag can’t touch the net during the serve only, it’s okay for the footbag to touch the net during the rally and depending on which side the footbag lands on you either score the point or win the rally to serve.
- No part of your body can pass the net, because the net is to low so your entire body must stay on your side of the playing field.
- Three hit maximum rule – Players can juggle the footbag, 3 consecutive times, using different body parts before getting the footbag over the net if needed. So, no more than three attempts to get it back over by.
