VX? What’s that? Well, the BBC called it ‘the best sport you’ve never heard of’ and Easi-RockIts is the oldest established VX Club in the world.
VX is the simplest sport there is – no goals, no zones, no markings, no targets. The recipe is said to be ‘a little lacrosse, a dash of dodgeball, a hint of hockey and a pinch of pelota.’ It’s a sport for all ages and all abilities and players can be playing within ten minutes!
It is played both in teams and singles. The Easi-RockIts sessions focus on the team versions. Each player carries a double-ended thrower/catcher called a VstiX. Balls are tennis-ball sized but are much softer. Normally played in two teams of 5 with 5 balls in play the aim is to hit your opponents with the balls (each hit scores 1 point) or catch an opponent’s throw (scores 3 points). Once the balls are kicked in players can go anywhere and, crucially, it is a game of honesty. When a player is hit (s)he is not out – (s)he raises his/her hand, the referee records the point and indicates to the player to play on, so there are no stops!
It’s fast, it’s furious but most important of all – it’s fantastic fun!
