Timed Game Guidance


1. There will be three timed qualifying games followed by an hour lunch break. After lunch there will be elimination games in the Concours and in the Consolante. The first round of Concours elimination games will be timed.


All timed games will be 40 minutes long + one end.


2. Play is not to begin until the whistle is sounded to begin that round.


3. 5 minutes before the time allotted for a game, a warning whistle will sound


4. At the end of the allotted time, another whistle will sound. You will finish your end and complete one more end.


5. If the scores are tied at the end of the allotted time the score will be recorded as a tie.


6. An end is considered to have started when the jack is set to a valid location, whether or not the first boule has been played.


7. If a team fails to set a valid jack on the first toss, the other team manually places (and does not toss) the jack in a valid location on the ground, and the first team commences play.


8. A valid jack is one set 6-10 meters from the circle.


9. For timed games, all string lines will be dead ball lines. At the start of an end in timed games, the thrown or placed jack must be at least half a meter from a side line and a meter from the end line. For untimed games side lines will be live but end lines will be dead ball lines. At the start of an end in untimed games, the thrown or placed jack must be at least a meter from a side line and a meter from the end line

10. If during the last end and after the first boule is played, the jack is determined not to be validly set, the jack is reset and the end begins again.


11. Knocking the jack out during the final end does not provide an extra end. Same for an end with no points scored.


13. Smoking or drinking of alcohol on the courts during a game is not allowed.


15. Both Captains are to report to the control table to have their scores recorded. Please note that all reported scores will be treated as final, so make sure you come to the table with both team captains (it is your responsibility).


16. Cell phones must be set not to ring and may not be used during a game.
