ABOUT ROCBALL INDIA

Rocball is a game derivative of volleyball with its roots of play founded the in the Meso-American sport of Tlachtli. The actual game of Tlachtli involved passing a ball from side to side over a low wall without it touching the ground. If the ball fell to the ground, a team would win a point and vice versa. If you struck the ball with an incorrect part of the body, you could lose points for your team.

However, the real purpose of the game was to get the ball through the hoop on a wall above either side of the court. The team that did this won, irrespective of the current score of the game. As a game, Tlachtli has often been described as a combination between volleyball and soccer. 
After the creation of volleyball in 1895 and prior to 1980, athletes who played this kind of team net sport played under two different general restrictions. In volleyball, players were not allowed to hit the ball with any part of the body below the waist. In the Asian sport of sepak takrau players were not allowed to use their arms or hands to touch or hit a ball.
