  • Doubles teams may be of same gender or mixed gender. Partners must each designate the other on their entry form. No partners will be assigned and no partner changes may be made after the entry deadline.
  • The age division of competition for doubles will be determined by the younger age of the two partners as of December 31, 2022.
  • Tournament format will be round robin, game and court times will be posted on site.
  • On bracket sheets, players and age divisions will be noted. If players are in the same age division they will be noted as medal games. All other games are out of age division and will not be medal games.
  • The tournament will be on a rolling schedule.  For your first match, you must be on the court at the scheduled start time or match will be marked as a forfeit.  After your first match we will run one match after another, please stay close!  One call for your start time will be given, if no response the match will be considered a forfeit.
  • Round Robin format will be used for age division winners. 
  • KSG reserves the right to change the tournament format for any age division based on entry numbers, space restrictions, or other circumstances.
  • Singles matches will consist of 8 frames. The winner will be the player who scores the highest number of points after the 8 frames or whoever reaches 75 points after a complete frame.
  • Two matches will be played on one court at the same time. Opposing players will play from the same end of the court. Players will not change ends after any frame.
  • Doubles matches will consist of 12 frames. Partners will play from opposite ends of the court. Each partner shall complete six frames, thus 12 total frames for the team. Players will not switch ends after any frame. The team or pair with the highest point score at the end of 12 total frames or the team who reaches 75 points after a completed frame will be the winner. Players may switch head to foot between games, but not during each game.
  • In the event of a tie, the players will participate in a playoff. The number of frames in a play-off will be determined by the Sport Commissioner and based on how many players are participating in that age bracket.

COMPETITION RULES

  • NO ONE SHOULD STEP ON THE COURTS AT ANY TIME!
  • There will be no practice shots prior to the tournament beginning.
  • Discs must be shot from the 10 off area.  Players may not touch the court or step over the base line at any time when executing a shot.
  • If a disc does not reach the furthest deadline, it should be immediately removed from the court.
  • Score all discs within and not touching the lines: the seperating triangle in the 10 off area should be ignored when scoring points.
  • In case of a tie match in both singles and doubles, two extra frames will be played until the tie is broken.
  • Singles matches:
    • Singles matches will consist of 12 frames.
    • Two matches will be played on each court at the same end of the court.  Players will change sides of the court after 6 frames, but will not change ends of the court or disc color during their matches.
    • To determine color choice, 1 practice lag disc will be shot by each player with yellow shooting first, and then 1 lag disc will be shot by each player.  The disc whose center is nearest the center of the furthest dead line will choose the color.  If the disc of the second player hits the disc of the first player, color choice will go to the first player.  Whoever chooses Yellow will have the first shot in the first frame and the last shot in the last frame.  Yellow will shoot first in all odd numbered frames and Black will shoot first in all even numbered frames.  there will be no changes in assigned colors during the matches.
    • Each player is permitted 4 prace shots prior to the start of the match with yellow shooting first.
    • Yellow will play from the right side of the court and Black from the left side of the court for the first 6 frames.  At the end of 6 frames, the players will switch positions at the same end of the court so that Black will then play from the right side while Yellow will play from the left side. This rule applies to the head of the court.  The discs at the foot of the court are directly across from their respective colors at the end of the court.
  • Doubles matches:
    • Doubles matches will consist of 16 frames with each partner completing 8 frames.
    • Partners will play from opposite ends of the court and will not switch ends or disc color during the matches, but players will change sides of the court after 8 frames.
    • Color choice will be deteremined in the same manner as singels at the head of the court (nearest the scoreboard) by either partner shooting for color.
    • Each player is permitted 4 practice shots prior to the start of the match with yellow shooting first.
  • The referee will make all determinations on scoring, who shoots first, when discs should be removed from the court, players should consult with the referee immediately.
