§ Points awarded are: 5 for a Win, 3 for a Draw and 1 for a Loss

§ The game will start once the first team delivers their first stone, they will then alternate between the two teams to deliver the remaining stones.
§ Each player delivers stones corresponding to their colour, red or blue towards the target at the opposite end of the court.
§ The target has concentric circles in red, white and blue – this is the scoring zone. The outer white section of the target are not included in the scoring zone.
§ The stone which is within the scoring zone and closest to the centre of the target is deemed to be ‘scoring’. Other stones of the same colour as the closest stone will score if they are also in the scoring zone and are closer to the centre than any of the opponent’s stone.
§ Scores possible in a single game for any one end are: 0-0, 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 or 4-0
§ Stones can be propelled using any part of the body or using a pusher, providing that the player is behind the delivery line on releasing the stone.

v It goes out of the playing area
v It rebounds from an object outside of the court
v It lands upside down
v The player commits a foot fault
