Description Stoolball’s first renaissance was in the 1600’s; there are many more references to stoolball than to cricket in the early years. Believed to originate as a game played by English milkmaids setting a milking stool on its side as a pitching target, stoolball evolved to include the use of bats instead of bare hands and running among goals. The modern form of the is actively played in parts of Southern England, and uses an opposing pair of square targets set well off the ground as goals, and heavy paddles as bats.
