In this blog post, we will take a look at the vivo pro kabaddi rules and regulations that will be in effect for the game in 2023. This will give you a better understanding of what to expect when watching or playing kabaddi matches.

Rules of the Game

The game of kabaddi is a physical and mental challenge that can be enjoyed by all. Here are the basic rules of the game:

-There are 11 players in a kabaddi match – seven on each side.
-A player is allowed to touch the ground with any part of their body, including their hands and feet.
-A player can move either towards or away from their opponents, but never stationary.
-A player must not intentionally step on or over any opponent. If an opponent is grounded, a player cannot step on them to try and release them. Instead, the grounded opponent must be released by a teammate.
-A Kabaddi point is scored when a player successfully grabs the ball from their opponents and brings it into their own half of the court, without being grounded or touching the ground with their hand or foot. The first team to score six points wins the match

Kabaddi Stick

Kabaddi stick is the main weapon in kabaddi. It is a thin, long stick with a point at one end and a squared off end. The object of the game is to catch the other team’s kabaddi stick and then rack up points by throwing it into the opponent’s goal. There are nine players on each side, with three players on the ground at all times.

Kabaddi Rackets

In kabaddi, two teams of seven players each take turns trying to catch the other team’s player and dump them over the net. The game is played on a rectangular court with a short barrier at each end. The object of the game is to capture all your opponent’s players or ‘rakshasas’, and then to place them over the edge of the court. Points are awarded for each player captured, and a point is also scored if the rakshasa falls into your half of the court (the ‘kotha’).

Kabaddi Ball

Kabaddi is a sport that mainly originated in India. It is a team sport that involves two teams of seven players each trying to capture the ball and bring it into their own half of the court. The team that scores most points after a period of play wins the match. There are several different ways to score points in kabaddi, including by tagging the opposing player with the ball, catching it with one’s hand, or running with it into one’s own half of the court. In order to keep things fair, each player on each team has an equal number of opportunities to score points. Kabaddi is a very fast-paced game and can be quite dangerous if not played correctly. It is important to know both the rules and regulations governing kabaddi so as to avoid getting penalized.

Penalty Corner

What are the penalty corner rules and regulations?

There are seven players in a penalty corner: two attackers, one defender and the goalkeeper. The goalkeeper must be at least 18 years of age, 6’4″ tall and weigh at least 100 kg. The other six players must be within 8 m of each other when the ball is kicked off from the penalty mark.

The attacking team must try to score by getting the ball into the goal through the goalkeeper’s net or past the defender playing closest to him/her. If they manage to do so, their opponent is automatically awarded a point. If they fail to score, then their opponent gets to take a free kick from anywhere within their own half of the pitch.

Kicking Rules

1. Kicking rules

The basic kicking rule for kabaddi is that the ball cannot be kicked below the waist and above the head. The kicker must also ensure that their foot is on the ground at all times when kicking the ball.

2. Hand-passing

A hand-pass can only be made to a player in your own half of the court. If a player receives a hand-pass from an opponent, they are allowed to take two steps before passing back to their opponent. If this second step is taken outside of your own half of the court, then it is considered a foul and possession of the ball passes to their opponent.

3. Goal-kicking

The goal-kicker has three attempts to score a point: making a direct hit with the ball, hitting an airborne target (a sookha) or taking a bouncing shot off an opponents’ body (jali). The goal-kicker must take into account both height and angle when shooting, as well as whether or not there are any defenders in front of the target area.

Duration of Games

The duration of a game will be based on the number of players in the match. The game will last no more than 75 minutes for teams with six players, and no more than 60 minutes for teams with five players. If there are fewer than six players on either team, the game will be shortened to 50 minutes.
