roofball rules, as explained to me at the ’73 reunion

  • The court is the back side of Tyler House; the ball is a tennis ball
  • Service is from beyond the sidewalk on the right of the court
  • The serve must hit the slate roof on the far left of the court and must hit the slate elsewhere on the roof to be legal (the “two-slates rule”)
  • The other team must catch the ball and return it to the roof from the point where they catch it
  • If the ball intentionally hits a window on the building, it is a fault on the throwing team
  • A team scores a point when their opponents fail to catch the ball on their serve
  • The game is to 11 points, and must be won by 2 points
