Backboard

There are two backboards on the court. Players in yellow WhirlyBugs shoot for the yellow backboard, and players in red WhirlyBugs shoot for the red backboard.

A score, called a whirlic, is worth two points if it's from less than half court and three points if it's from more than half court. To score, an individual must hit the electronic sensor behind the net with the wiffleball and set off the buzzer. Penalty points are awarded for rule violations.
