When playing each one takes a turn to hit the ball towards the wall in front before its 2nd bounce. Taking into account not to exceed the starting line (the highest) or hit the can that is located at the level of the knees. If the ball hits outside of the allowed places, this will automatically be a failure and rally will end, as if the ball bounced more than twice on the ground.
