The Host Nation and the ISA President shall jointly decide on the appointment of the Tournament Director (TD). The joint decision will be announced by the ISA President. PLAYING RULES:
1. No charting is permitted during International Shuffling. Specifically, no player may refer to drawings or any similar device designed to assist in executing the shot after the game has started.
2. The game shall be “NON WALKING SINGLES" with two opposing players at each end of the court.
3. A game shall consist of 16 frames, 8 on each colour. Players change colour at the end of 8 frames.
4. At the beginning of each game, two (2) discs may be shot by each player to check speed. Four (4) setup disks are allowed for each player. The shooter may ask the player at the other end to place his/her cue in the desired location for the first shot and thereafter; the player may position the shooter’s discs as targets. When opponent’s discs are available, they may be used as a target.
5. After changing colour at the end of eight (8) frames, four (4) setup discs may be shot by each player on their new colour. The shooter may ask the player at the other end to place his/her cue in the desired location for the first shot and thereafter, the player may position the shooter’s discs as targets. When opponent’s discs are available, they may be used as targets.
6. When there is doubt as to whether or not a disc is counting, the first call shall be made by the person playing black at the opposite end of the court. If either the shooter or his/her op- ponent doubts the call, the other person shooting the yellow disc shall immediately make the second call. Both the shooter and the opponent may accept the calls or if absolutely neces- sary, travel the length of the court to look at the disc in question and should they disagree, the TD or his/her designate will make this final call.
7. If a disc is moved by the players at the other end, by mistake during play, it will be placed back in its former position, as close as possible. If multiple discs have been moved and it’s difficult to get them back in their proper locations, then the frame will be re played.
8. No scores shall be recorded and the round/game is not over until the absolute last disc has been shot and comes to a complete stop.
All court and colour assignments are the responsibility of the Tournament Director.
1. (a) No substitutions are permitted in ISA Singles Tournaments.
(b) Any player not present and ready to play at his/her assigned place within fifteen minutes of the scheduled start time shall forfeit that match.
(c) Any player unable to play due to injury or illness shall notify the TD as soon as possible. (d) Any missed matches shall be a forfeit.
(e) Any player may resume participation at their next scheduled round after notifying the TD that they are fit to play, regardless of the number of rounds missed.
1. As the International Shuffleboard Tournament is to foster International Fellowship
and good will, there will be NO penalties assessed.
2. When your opponent is shooting, please make sure that you are not in any way interfering. You should step back and hold your cue in an upright position.
3. Please, do not move any discs until the score is recorded on the scoreboard.
HAVE A GOOD TOURNAMENT!!
