Beach Woodball is one of the most mysterious sports of the Asian Beach Games, and is a modern sport invented in Taiwan in the 90s by Mr. WENG Minghui. There are two types of Woodball courts: sand and grass. Woodball is easy to learn, competition rules are simple, and there are few restrictions on the courts, making this sport particularly fun. 

Woodball can be played on any wide, level, grassy or sandy field, by simply marking out the court with string and sticking a few pegs to mark the fairways and gates, and then you are ready to start swinging. Of course, there are standards for a Beach Woodball court, and a regulation Beach Woodball Competition requires a Woodball court with 6 fairways, or a multiple of 6 fairways, with each fairway between 20 - 80 meters long and 3 - 6 meters wide, with at least two curves, one to the left, and one to the right. Woodball mallets should be about the same length as a golf club, in a T-shape with a bottle shaped head with a rubber cap, suitable for hitting balls. The two gate posts are bottle shaped, and are affixed to the ground, with a 15 centimeter wide gap in between. An upside-down cup should be hung in the gate as the gate cup. and the bottom of the cup should be 15 centimeters from the ground. During competition, when the ball passes the cup, it means that the competition is over. The ball used for competition should be made of wood, with a diameter of approximately 9.5 centimeters and a weight of approximately 350 grams. The movement of the ball is similar to golf, but also has some properties unique to the sport. Since this sport can be played by people of all ages, its known as Golf for Everyone

Beach Woodball Competitions have two types. The first type is the Stroke Count Competition, where the total number of strokes taken during the competition determines the winner, that is to say, during the course of the entire competition, the player who takes the lowest number of strokes is the winner. The second type is the Fairway Competition, where the winner of the most individual fairways is the overall winner, that is to say, whoever wins the most fairways wins the competition.
