Rules of Play
National Rules apply to the
National Championships and to the Australian Masters and State
Challenge Trophy. They also form the basis for rules of all other
ASPA-sanctioned events. The rules are flexible enough to cater for most
levels of tournament and social play. State associations may allow
minor variations to the National Rules.
New South Wales has three variations as of January 2008.
please be aware
of Rotating Board protocols.
Clubs conducting their own tournaments may vary the Tournament rules at any time, provided they let players know in advance in their tournament publicity.
