ORDINARY SINGLES PLAY
C. INTERFERENCE WITH PLAY
35. MISCELLANEOUS INTERFERENCE
- TURN WRONGLY
ENDING If the striker quits the court wrongly believing his turn
has ended and the mistake is discovered before the first stroke of
the adversary's turn, the striker's turn is deemed not to have ended
and he resumes play. If the adversary becomes aware of the mistake
he must inform the striker immediately.
- BALL JAMMED
IN A HOOP If a ball jams in a hoop the equipment must be adjusted
or replaced. If a ball remains jammed in a hoop at the end of a stroke
then, provided that the turn has not otherwise ended and that no further
stroke has been played, the striker may elect to replay the stroke.
- BALL STRIKING
A CLIP OR THE PEG EXTENSION If a ball strikes a clip attached to
a hoop or the peg, or the peg extension when attached to the peg, it
is not interference with play and there is no remedy. However, an unattached
clip or peg extension or a clip from another game is an outside agency
and Law 33(b) applies.
- If a player
becomes aware that a boundary marking is displaced he must forestall
play in accordance with Law 23(c).
- If the
marking was displaced before a stroke began and the straightening of
it would affect a test as to whether a ball has left the court in that
stroke or would affect the playing of the next stroke, such test or
stroke must be completed before the marking is straightened.
- If the
marking was displaced after the stroke began, or straightening it would
not affect play, it must be straightened before such test or the next
stroke is played.
- When a
marking is straightened, any affected yard-line balls must be adjusted
accordingly. Any other balls in the immediate vicinity must also be
moved so as to maintain the relative positions of the balls.
