About Fricket

  • Wham-O product used: Frisbee

Fricket or disc cricket is a disc game generally played by two teams of two players each (two-on-two), though it is possible to play one-on-one. The game is roughly derived from cricket (though in some ways having more in common with horseshoes), and played with flying discs. Fricket is also sometimes called catchy-throwy, cups or crispy wickets or stickupski. The name "fricket" is derived from a combination of the words "Frisbee" (a trademarked flying disc brand name) and "cricket". Fricket is a non-contact game, and therefore no protective equipment is necessary. Four 4- or 5-foot (1.5 m)-long wickets are needed for this game, though bamboo garden stakes, wooden dowels and steel or plastic rods also make suitable substitutes for wickets. A 12-ounce plastic cup is needed to set atop each of the four wickets, along with a flying disc within the specifications for the disc game ultimate (sport). The wickets are set into the ground in the shape of a long rectangle, with one pair approximately 15 inches (380 mm) apart (or "a disc and a fist") and the second pair approximately 40 feet (12 m) away, directly opposite the first pair, with the field forming right angles at each
