This ground-level view of the enormous playing field in the Great Ballcourt makes a strong point in favor of those who maintain this court was not used for actual ballplay. The breadth and length of the court are so large as to make it impossible for players to strike the ball from one end to the other. Also, the stone rings (through which, some think, the ball would have been made to pass) are about six meters up on the vertical walls, which would have put them completely beyond the players' reach.
