Fricket is a non-contact game of skill and amusement. The use of a flying disc, 4' wickets and some plastic cups equates to potentail hours of entertainment. Fricket is also frequently called Cups, Suzy Sticks or Disc Cricket. (FYI, the name “Fricket” is derived from the combination of the words "Frisbee" and "Cricket.")
Here’s how you begin:
- Get some buddies. The game is usually played two on two, although it is entirely possible to play with just two people.
- Dig out four 4- or 5-foot-long wickets. Bamboo garden stakes, wood dowels, or steel or plastic rods all make excellent wickets in/around the half inch diameter range.
- Find at least four 12-ounce plastic cups and an Ultimate disc.
- Set up the wickets by poking them into the ground. You’re going to make a long rectangle with them. Place one pair approximately 15 inches apart, walk off approximately 40 feet (+/- 13 paces), and poke in the second pair. Do your best to make all the angles square.
- Place the cups on top of the wickets
- Play! Each team stands behind a wicket pair and aims to throw the disc between the other team’s wickets without knocking off the cups or by knocking the cups off. Points can be scored in a variety of ways. Please refer to the rules page for scoring details.
