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.

Also, please be aware of Rotating Board protocols.

  1. Current National Rules - from Jan 14, 2020
  2. Tournament Etiquette A guide to common situations not mandated by the rules.

Clubs conducting their own tournaments may vary the Tournament rules at any time, provided they let players know in advance in their tournament publicity.
