Approximately 80 metres in a slight arc, but it is usually to be done within 20 metres. At this distance you can shoot straight.

What is absolutely prohibited?
Not wearing your safety mask or wearing it incorrectly. Therefore, there are always one or several game leaders (marshals) on the playing field who keep an eye on your safety.

Shout “marshal” very loudly and you will be helped immediately.
Definitely stay where you are, do not stand up on and do not walk towards the marshal.
