How to Make a Wicket
Use a hammer to pound two chopsticks or 1/4-inch dowels (cut to 10 to 12 inches long) halfway into the ground about 30 to 40 inches apart, depending on how tall you want your wickets. Slide a hollow pool noodle in place.

How to Make a Target Station
Put it together: Duct-tape six rings to one another, then tape them to thicker (3 1/2-inch-wide) hollow pool noodle posts.

Stand it upright: Hammer two 1/2-inch dowels (ours were 48 inches long) securely into the ground and slide the posts on top.
