• Home team is responsible for refereeing each game.
• Players must play to the format specified on the score sheet which consists of 12 single frames.
• Before the match the captain is responsible for writing his selected 4 or more players names clearly on separate pieces of paper. These should be then double-folded so the names are not visible. The captains will then select 4 player names and subsequently playing order of the opposing team (if you chose to put more than 4 players in the hat then the remainder left in the hat are subs).
• Before every frame either the referee tosses a coin and the away player calls or both players can lag for the break. Whoever wins the toss/lag decides if they or their opponent breaks. There’s no alternate break due to the even number of frames in this format.
• In the event that one team only has three players then they must include a ‘BYE’ in there drawn cards to determine where to enter the BYE on the result card and their opponent will be awarded the frame. In the event of both teams only having 3 players then the event organiser must be contacted.
• Match format similar to Team Knockout; single frames but with 4 players instead of 5 and all frames must be played. The competition consists of three phases of play involving four players. One player substitution only is permitted in phases 2 and 3. If a player is substituted in Phase 2 they can be subbed back in again in Phase 3 but can only return in to the playing order in their original playing position. All 12 frames must be played as there are no points for a win the group positions are decided firstly by frame difference, then frames for, then head-to-head and if group positions still can’t be determined then a toss of a coin to decide.
• A knockout stage will follow, where the final result after 12 frames has resulted in a draw (i.e. 6-6) a 3 frame play off will take place to determine the winner who will progress to the next round. Any of the players that have played in the 3rd phase are eligible to enter their names into the hat to determine who will play the play-off games. (i.e a team can choose to put all 4 names in the hat or just the 3 required players). The play-off games are to be played in the order pulled from ‘the hat’ by opposing captains as per the rules at the start of the match. Either the referee tosses a coin and the away player calls or both players lag in each of the play-off frames.
