Kabaddi is a game or a team sport. There are two teams on opposite halves of a small field. They take turns in sending a “raider” into the other half. This is to win points by tackling members of the opposing team.

Rules are necessary because
• they provide an agreement for understanding the competition.
• they define what is allowed or not allowed in the game which has to be kept in mind by the players while playing the game.

What are the rules of playing Kabaddi?

The rules for playing Kabaddi are
• Each team shall not consist of more than 12 players with only 7 taking to the field at any one time.
• There are six officials looking after each Kabaddi match. The officials comprise of a referee, a scorer, two assistant scorers and two umpires.
• The duration of the match is two halves of 20 minutes with a half time break of 5 minutes.
• After a coin toss, the winner has the choice as to have the first raid or not.
• In the second half of the match, the team that did not raid first shall begin the second half with a raid.
• To win a point when raiding, the raider must take a breath and run into the opposition’s half and tag one or more members of the opposing team and then return to their own half of the pitch before inhaling again.
• The raider must continue to repeatedly yell the word ‘Kabaddi’. Failure to do this, even for just a moment means that the rider must return to their own side of the court without points and the opposite team is awarded a point for a successful defense play.
• The team that is being raided is defending, and the players must prevent the raiders from tagging them and returning back over the halfway line.
• a team may score a point by successfully preventing the raider returning to their own half after tagging them.
• Each team will take turns in raiding and defending. Following halftime, the two teams switch sides of the court and the team who defended first in the first half begin the second half by raiding.
• The game continues in this way until the time is up, the team with the most points at the end of the match is declared the winner.

Pushing and pulling, screaming and shouting, dragging and falling on the ground all are involved in the game of Kabaddi. It is a rough game, yet it has many rules. It is lots of fun, and lots of exercise. It involves holding your breath while running and continuously saying Kabaddi-Kabaddi and also trying to touch the players of the opposite team. So many things have to be done in Kabaddi. You have to hold your breath. You need to use both your body and mind in this game. You have to use your strength to pull or stop the players.

Everyone knows about hockey and cricket are the most famous games which are why most of the other games are being neglected. These games are bend towards male sports and kabaddi is one of the games that doesn’t have to be such a game. To give the game more important than the other games so that people choose other games too rather than being only interested in cricket. That is why the government of each and every state is encouraging and arranging sports contests of various games rather than only cricket.
