What is Showdown?

Showdown is a 1:1 game for the blind, visually impaired and sighted. The aim of the game is to use a bat to hit the jingling ball into the opposite goal. At the same time, you have to defend your own goal. The goals are formed by two indentations at the ends of the table. A player wins a set when he reaches 11 points first and has at least two points more than his opponent. A match is usually played best of three, but this may vary for final round matches.
