Roy Birney

Hey Everyone,


My name is Roy. I am the creator of RuneBall. The game was created in 2003. Recently I have been developing it with the help of some friends. To whom I owe great thanks.

I have been fencing / sword fighting since I was eight years old. Working with wood since about eight as well.

My vision for the game is to have it become a national sport. I believe in this game, it is exhilarating moving the ball toward the goal, intoxicating when you strike the ball and feel the force as you send it toward your target. This game has become an addiction. It has the ability to be something great. Every year the game has taken leaps and bounds. A few set backs, no matter, this game shall constantly grow and hopefully, become what it is meant to be.

I cant do it alone though, I need good people striving and pushing others to come out and learn. To play the game. Thank you for visiting the site today, and if you are not already a RuneBall Recruit please message me with any questions and come out to join the games.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to get to start out?

We would reccomend getting: - 2 RuneBall Swords - 1 RuneBall - 1 RuneBall Handbook This is all you really need to start out. If you have a larger group that wants to start together you can get a few more RuneBall swords. Generaly, you should get 1 Demon Sword & 1 Angel Sword. Keeping the amount equal that way if someone wants to use a lighter sword they can use the Angel Sword or the other way. Most games we have several RuneBalls to avoid having to retreave the ball everytime it goes out of bounds.

This game looks dangerous, will I get injured while playing it?

We get asked this question alot. To answer it simply. You are just as likely to get injured playing RuneBall as any other sport. Yes there is fencing, and a fast moving basketball. Injuries accure. Mostly when players are not paying attention. Just like in regular sports. Watching the ball is key. Knowing where other players are is important as well. Our most common injury is simple two players running into each other. The second most common is the ball striking an unaware or distracted player. Over the years there have been less then a dozen sword related injuries. Well under one a year. With this said, armor, helmets & other protective appareal can be worn. The players in the videos have been playing the game for some time, and prefer not to wear protective gear. Body Armor is sold here at along with helmets, gloves and other protective equipment. Check out our Armory for more details.
