An end where the jack has been cast before 3hr 30 minutes must be played to a finish. All dead ends must be replayed. Start time must be agreed by both players from the same timepiece and marked on the scorecard. If a game is unable to continue due to unforeseen circumstances, the competitors must return as soon as possible to complete the game. 5.6 SETS PLAY (i) The Under 18 Singles and Under 25 Singles Championships will be played in sets. Each match will consist of two sets, each set being played over 9 ends. A set will be decided if at any point it becomes impossible for one player to draw, or win, the set given the number of ends remaining. (ii) If the game is tied after 2 sets, by either player having won 1 set or both sets being drawn, a best of a three end “tie breaker” will be played to determine the winner. If the game is still drawn after three tied ends have been played then one extra end will be played. The match tie breaker is decided by the winner of each end, and not by the total number of shots won in the three sets. (iii) The winner of the toss prior to the start of the match shall have the option to either take the mat or give it to his opponent on the first end only. The loser of the toss shall have the option of taking the mat or giving it away on the first end only of the second set. (iv) After the first end of any set, the player who wins an end will start the next end in the set. (v) In a match tie breaker the player winning the toss shall have the choice of starting or giving away the jack on the first and third ends. The loser of the toss shall have the choice of starting the second end or giving away the jack on this end only. (vi) If a jack in motion passes completely outside the boundaries of the rink of play or rebounds to a distance of less than 20 metres from the mat line, the jack shall be re-spotted. If the jack passes outside the side boundary of the rink it should be placed on a pre-arranged spot on the rink which is 2 metres from the front ditch and 1½ metres to the left or right of the centre line, on the side that it left the rink of play. (viii) If a bowl is on the re-spot, the jack will be placed as near as possible to the bowl without touching it, between the spot and the centre of the rink. If any other bowls are in the way the jack will be placed as near to that without touching it and the centre of the rink. In other words, directly between the 2 spots without touching a bowl. 5.7 OFFERING DATES (i) In all individual competitions (singles, pairs, triples, fours) the challenger shall offer his/her opponent the choice of 2 dates, one weekday evening and one weekend.
