Roll Ball is an indigenous game of India. Roll Ball is a dynamic game blending roller skates, basketball, handball, and throwball, played between two teams of twelve players. The objective is to score goals within a set timeframe. It allows ball handling with one or both hands, bouncing repeatedly. Invented by Raju Dabhade in 2003, it's governed by the International Roll Ball Federation, emphasizing balance, speed, accuracy, and teamwork. With six World Cup matches held, Roll Ball has garnered global attention and become a beloved sport among youth.

Refereeing is a very critical task. The role of referees and players on the field of play demonstrates many more managerial skills. Management is a term is meant not only for companies, but also for sports.
