Atya-Patya is an ancient Indian game of feints, played between two teams of nine players on a field divided into fourteen 11ft squares. The attackers try to dodge and slip through the squares without getting tagged by the defenders.
Atya paty is very popular in India particularly in rural areas, where it is often played in the moonlight.
The field of play is 23feet 1 inch wide and 86 feet 4 inch in length is disected into fourteen 11foot squares (kondi) boardered by 13inch wide strips (patis).The game begins with the "attackers" who first stand outside the court, then try to dodge and slip through the kondis by crossing the patis without getting tagged by the "defenders" who move to and fro on his designated pati. Any of the attackers who successfully crosses all the patis and then makes a succesfull return trip, scores a point.
Atya paty is played in seven minute sessions. The defenders then become the attackers.
