1. FIELD OF PLAY means the area which shall be covered with the IKF approved playing mats measuring a minimum of 17 meters x 18 meters and maximum of 20 meters x 20 meters. 2. COURT means the area on which Kabaddi matches shall be conducted measuring 13 meters x 10 meters. Court is within the Field of Play, represented through lines (points ABCD as indicated in the above diagram). 3. END LINE means the four boundary lines forming the court together. If any player (raider or defender) crosses this line during a raid, then that player will be removed from the field of play by the referee and sent to the bench. A point is awarded to the opposing team for each player removed from the court 4. LOBBY means the strips on both sides of the court. During a raid, if the raider or defender enters the lobby without any contact between the raider and the defenders, then those players will be removed from the field of play by the referee and sent to the bench. A point is awarded to the opposing team for each player removed from the court for entering the lobby illegally 5. MID LINE means the line that divides the court into two equal halves. It is the line a raider crosses to begin a raid by entering the opposing team’s half of the court. Within 30 seconds, the raider must come back and cross the mid line having either scored a point, or returning empty handed. If the raider doesn’t cross the mid line within 30 seconds, he is called ‘Out’ and is sent to the bench. A point is also awarded to opposing team.
6. BAULK LINE means each of the lines in court parallel to the mid line (MN & RQ as indicated in the above diagram). The distance of the baulk line from the mid line is 3.75 meters. This is an important line. When the raider begins a raid by crossing the mid line, he must first and foremost cross the baulk Line. The baulk Line legitimizes a raid and, hence if the raider fails to cross the baulk Line during a raid and crosses the mid line to return back into his team’s half, then the raider will be called ‘Out’. A point is awarded to the opposing team
7. BONUS LINE means the line between the baulk line and end line (PO & TS as indicated in the above diagram). The distance between bonus line and baulk line is 1 meter. The bonus line gives the raider an opportunity to score a point in his raid without the need to touch a defender through a Bonus point. The raider can claim a bonus point by crossing the bonus line if there are six or more defenders on court. However, in this process, while one foot of the raider has to be between the bonus line and end line, his trailing foot has to be in the air.
