How to Play Kerby
Basics of a Match
Players try to throw the ball with the aim to hit the opponent’s kerby. You score points if you hit the kerby and the ball rolls or bounces back to your half of the street. The first one to score 15 points, with a two-point difference, wins the game. There is an 8-minute time limit. If neither of the players have scored 15 points after 8 minutes, the player with the most points wins.
In order to organise a match you need:
The distance between the kerby’s is about 4 metres.
Did you know?
That there is a real Kerby Championship in the Netherlands every year!
Every year, dozens of municipalities participate in the preliminary rounds for the Kerby Championship with more than 20 thousand participants.
How cool is that! Kerby is the sponsor of the Kerby Championship that is organized by Jantje Beton.
Hit your Opponent*
A throw from “the street” is not without risk, as de player can then be hit by his opponent. A player who is hit then loses all his/her points!
How to Count
In this game you can score 0, 1 or 2 points per throw. The players would normally keep track of the score (out loud) themselves. After each game, the players switch half.
Hit by your Opponent
The first player to score 15 points with a 2-point difference with his/her opponent, wins. There is an 8-minute time limit. If neither of the players has scored 15 points after 8 minutes, the player with the most points wins.
If both players have an equal number of points after 8 minutes, both players can throw three times. The player who scores most points wins. If it is still a draw both players continue to throw once, until there is a one-point difference.
