Two players (blue) with the ball start from the half way line. They're playing against Red 1 and Red 2.
After the attackers have had their shot the 2 defenders must box out and claim the rebound.

Attackers become the new defenders, the defending pair leave the court and swap with a new pair who are the new attackers!
Continue until every pair has had a go.
Players are numbered from one to five with player number one starting with the ball to the right of the key.
player number one will then pass the ball to player number two, following the direction of their pass and joining the left hand side of the court behind player number four.
