Tournament rules:

  • Each player MUST shoot one at a time.
  • Two balls in one cup = GAMEOVER.
  • Each team is allowed TWO (2) re-racks or chances to rearrange their cups.
  • Player's elbow may not cross the shooting line. If a violation occurs, it will result in a miss even if the ball goes into a cup. (Violations can only be called by referees.)
  • A cup that falls on/off the table is considered a cup. Players can't catch cups.
  • Any fault that occurs (ball interference, table interference, cup interference) and is caught by the referee will result in a cup penalty and is chosen by the team that did not commit the penalty.
  • Lateness to the tournament will result in one rack penalty (meaning your team will only be allowed one re-rack for the game.)
