Aunt Sally Sticks
The sticks are 18 inches long, 2 inches diameter and made from kiln-dried Beechwood. The typical weight is 1lb 4oz but weights between 1lb 2oz and 1lb 8oz are available. The ends of the sticks are waxed but have not been treated in any other way - some people may wish to apply a preserver such as linseed oil before use.
Storage: It is a good idea to treat the sticks once a season with a preservative (we recommend Sadolin as this dries quickly) or Linseed oil (which takes a few days to dry). In the old days, players used to oil their sticks and then bury them in sand for the winter!

Aunt Sally Post and Swivel Iron
There is no standard type of Aunt Sally post and they can be made from sturdy wood (square or round cross-section) or any other material. We have found in the past that a standard 3/4 inch metal gas pipe from a DIY store makes an ideal post - but make sure that the internal diameter is not too small for the swivel to fit into. Cut to a length of 3 foot, 6 inches and bury the first foot in the ground. Note that if the ground is quite soft, you may need to bury a slightly longer post more deeply.
For your convenience, we do now make available these pre-cut gas pipe posts that should work fine.
A swivel-iron arm is also available - one end fits to the top of the post and the Aunt Sally doll rests upon the small round platform at the other end (the swivel-iron should be attached to the top of a post so that the bottom of the doll is 30 inches above the ground).

Aunt Sally Backdrop
To protect the players and to prevent sticks and dolls flying too far from the playing area, we recommend that a protective backdrop is constructed behind the post. This can be done in a number of ways but often a sheet of canvas, leather, blanket or other impact-absorbing material is suspended from a frame, tree, fence or whatever happens to be available. The sheet should hang 30 inches behind the post.For tournaments and more serious play, a PVC Polyester Aunt Sally backdrop is available. The sheet comes with eyelets around the edges so that it can be tied to a suitable post or tree with rope (not supplied). The sheet is made in the traditional colours of green with a black dot (made from panama weave material) in the middle.
We cannot supply a frame but the frame can be made in the same way as a football goal and needs to surround the sheet with around 6 inches gap so that the sheet can be tied to it in the manner of a trampoline. A typical frame is 6.5 feet high and 7, 9 or 10 feet wide. The most common size is 6 x 6 feet but if you would like a higher or a wider sheet, select from the options below (you must specify orientation because the target spot is always placed at the same height, regardless of the size of the backdrop).
