Set Up: Area 10x30 yrds, 2 teams, nominate 2 taggers for each team. Tagger defends individually and moves freely within the whole area. Runners go one at a time to try and evade the taggers in all areas, when tagger either gets tagged or beats first tagger, then the next runner starts.If a runner gets to end of area without being tagged, they score a point, each time a tagger tags a runner, they score a point.
