2 grids each with 4 pairs of gates (e.g. 2 red, 2 blue, 2 white, 2 yellow).

One player from each pair plays for the bibs team and the other for shirts.


4 pairs play 1v1 inside each grid, with each pair assigned a gate colour. Either player from the pair can score in either goal, with games lasting for 5 minutes. Players are to keep score. After 5 minutes, scores are collected and totaled up for bibs & shirts. Change partner (keeping bibs v shirts). Go round 4 times in total so everyone plays every opponent in their grid. 


Whichever team has the most total points at the end of the 4 matches gets a 2 goal head start in the game at the end.
