 - a brief description:

  • The start line for a game is between Corner 4 and level with Hoop 4, on the eastern boundary, where the ball is marked in on the one-yard line, similar to AC
  • Any roquet earns the player one more shot, to be used as a standard GC shot (taking position, running a hoop, clearing an opponent’s ball, etc.)
  • Only one continuation shot per turn
  • When balls leave the lawn, they are marked in one yard
  • When taking their first shot, in turn, if the player fails to make a roquet then it is end-of-turn, so deciding to try a roquet or placing the ball for a strategic position, is an important decision
