ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
- Arrive at Gaga Bowl on time and with a minimum of 1 adult/Team Leader. That adult will stay with the team to help keep organized.
- Official referees will be provided at each pit.
- A match is won by winning the best of 3 sets.
- Each team will play no more than 10 players per match/set (a team may have more than 10). If your team has 10 and the team you play has 8 then you play 8 players. (We encourage the players that sit out the first set play the next set)
- Gaga Bowl II will have several pits. Each pit has 6 walls – each wall is 10 foot long
- We encourage you to find a way to identify your team. (Could be with a unique name, uniforms, face paint, chant, or all of the above and more)
- Rules to how we play the game are below.
GAGA BOWL: OFFICIAL RULES
- The referee is the sole authority during play and is responsible for settling disputes and ensuring fair play. (All players will play honestly and will call themselves out if they get out)
- The referee begins play only after all players are standing in the gaga pit and have indicated that they are ready to start the game by having their heels against the wall.
- To start play the ref tosses the ball up in the air. Players yell “GA!” on the first bounce and “GA!” again on the second bounce, and the ball is then in play.
- Players hit the ball with their hands only, and may not carry or throw the ball – it must be hit with open hand or fist. If a player “carries,” that person will be eliminated.
- If the ball touches a player anywhere “on” or “below” the knee, that player is eliminated from the game and must step out of the pit as soon as possible. Play does not stop.
- If the ball goes out of the gaga pit, the person that caused the ball to go out of play is eliminated or the last player to touch the ball with their hands is eliminated.
- Once a player hits the ball, he or she must wait until the ball touches a wall or another person before hitting it again (“double tap”). If a player “double taps,” that player is eliminated.
- When there are only two players remaining, play will stop and both players will put their heels on the wall and the referee will start the final play. The last person standing represents the win for his/her team.
