A ball is considered to be successfully through a wicket when the entire ball has cleared the wicket.
A simple test would be running the mallet head down both sides of the wicket — and none of the mallet touches the ball. During regular play the ball and mallet come together on either circular end of the mallet.
Spread your feet apart, facing the ball to be hit, and back-swing the mallet back through your legs — hitting the ball when you move the mallet forward. Each turn consists of one stroke. There are NO extra shots for hitting other balls before making wickets.
You may Not put your foot on your ball to knock another ball away. When a ball crosses over the boundary line, that ball is brought back inside the boundary line, one mallet-head length, at the point it crossed over the line.
In the next turn the ball is played from there. Each games lasts 30 minutes.

Sometimes, each side carries six clips of their own colour, which are placed on the hoops to mark who scored each one as the game progresses.
The game starts by playing the balls in order from a position within one yard of corner 4 see Diagram 1. Note that for friendly or club games this rule is often relaxed to be anywhere within one yard of the East boundary, and between corner 4 and level with the 4th hoop - this is so as to reduce wear on the corner area.
All players try in successive turns to run hoop 1. As soon as any player completes the running of hoop 1, then the hoop point is scored for that side.
All players then move on from where their balls currently are to contest hoop 2, and so on around the court. So each hoop is scored only once, for one side or the other. The side scoring the hoop may place one of their coloured clips on the hoop.
The hoops are run in the order and direction shown in Diagram 1. The game is usually played as a "best of 13 point" game, and stops as soon as one player has scored 7.
If the points are level after running the 12th hoop, the game is decided by contesting hoop 3 again. The peg plays no part in GC, other than as an obstacle and a reminder of colour order. The Turn 8.
A turn consists of a single stroke. A stroke is played when the striker the owner of the ball due to be played next hits the correct ball with their mallet and causes it to move, or commits a fault see para. A player may not deem a stroke to be played.
When any ball leaves the court, it is placed on the boundary where it went off. If, when a boundary ball comes to be played, there is insufficient space outside the boundary to allow the striker to play the stroke freely, then the ball may be moved in from the boundary by the minimum amount required to allow an unhampered stroke.
If a boundary ball obstructs the playing of another ball, the boundary ball may be temporarily removed.
If replacement of a ball on the boundary is prevented by the presence of another ball which will be played first, then the ball is replaced after the obstructing ball has been played. Otherwise the obstructing ball is temporarily removed to allow the stroke to be played. A ball may be jumped over a hoop or another ball, provided that the lawn surface is not damaged by the mallet see faults para 21 e.

Hoop Point A ball scores a hoop point by passing through the next hoop in the order and direction shown in Diagram 1. This is also known as running a hoop. Click for full-size image A ball begins to run a hoop when any part of it first emerges from the back non-playing side of the hoop and finishes doing so when the whole of it finally enters the front of the hoop playing side , provided that it does not come back past this point later in the stroke see Diagram 2.
A ball may take more than one turn to complete the running of a hoop. If a ball other than the striker's ball is knocked through the next hoop in order, then that hoop is scored for side owning that ball.
If more than one ball runs a hoop in the same stroke, then the ball which was closest to the hoop at the start of the stroke is deemed to have scored the point.Some players would block without hesitation.
