Tambourelli is a fun and inclusive game played on small courts (10m by 4m) that needs a badminton shuttle a net and 2 bats to play.
The aim of the game is simply to get 21 points before your opponent does, and can be played and enjoyed straight away with 2 or 4 people of any ability.
Points are scored by trying to get the shuttle to land on the ground in the opposite court.
Tambourelli has been played in the Galloway for many years. Recently children, especially in the Machars, have had chances to play through After school and Active school sessions. These aim to promote Tambourelli as a way to keep fit and have fun.
