Though author Jason Fry didn’t invent grav-ball (originally in Legends material), he invented the rules for Edge of the Galaxy which he describes below:

“The field (called the grid) is 64 meters long and divided into eight octets, each of which is eight meters long. The game begins with a chance-cube toss, and the team that wins the toss starts at the center line dividing the fourth and fifth octets.

“The team on offense gets three drives to pass or carry the ball forward a total of eight meters into the next octet. Succeed, and you get another three drives. Fail, and the ball is turned over to the defense, which is trying to go the other direction.

“In the middle of the first and eighth octets at each end of the grid are two scoring circles (actually semicircles), surrounding a three-meter hoop on a stalk. Putting the ball through the hoop by hand or throwing it through the hoop from within the scoring circle is a touch-score and worth four points; kicking it through from anywhere on the grid is a kick-score and worth two points.

Jason Fry’s Notes

Clarified Text
(Some Parts Illegible)

“A grav-ball squad consists of nine players. The key player is the center striker, who begins each drive with the ball and can run it himself or herself, hand it off to another player, or pass it down the grid. The center striker is flanked by two fullbacks, with two strikers farther out “on the wing.” Fullbacks typically carry the ball, while strikers dart out to catch passes. Behind the center striker is the defense, consisting of two defenders and a keeper whose job is to protect the goal.

“The ninth player is the kicker, a specialist called on as a substitute when a kick-score is needed. The kicker also comes in for a trap-kick, kicking the ball down the grid on third drive to force the other team to cover more ground. There are restrictions on what a player at a given position can do — for instance, a keeper can’t leave the scoring circle and the center striker can’t enter it even if he or she has the ball. Besides battling each other, teams must contend with the clock — a grav-ball game is divided into three periods (called triads), each 20 minutes long.”
