Rules and Regulations of Kho-Kho

The grounds are 27 by 16 meters, with a distance of 24 meters between the two pillars, and a central street whose width is 30 centimeters. The width of each cross lane is 35 cm. Behind each pole is a 1.5-meter-long expanse of the court known as a “free zone”, with no restrictions on the movement of pursuers. The chasing team scores points each time a defender is “out”, which is when a chaser hits a defender without breaking a rule, or when a defender leaves the court.
