SCOTCH DOUBLES RULES

  • Players on a team alternate each shot.  The alternating team breaks; either team member may break.
  • Teams may alternate shooting rotation after each game. Failure to stay in rotation once the game has started will result in a FOUL.  The original rotation must be restored on their next turn.  Note: It is permissible to inquire as to whose shot it is at anytime without fear of a coaching foul.  Any further discussion when the team is deemed to be “at the table” will result in a FOUL.
  • NO COACHING: When a team is not “at the table”, they may quietly discuss anything they please…or not.  No time outs or coaching allowed.  Any assistance (verbal or non-verbal) by a team during their turn at the table is a FOUL.
  • When the table is turned over to the incoming team, one of the partners must immediately approach the table.
  • Any of the four players involved with the matches can call a FOUL.
  • All other rules pertaining to 8-Ball apply.
