Monsterball Beach Tournament 2017

A monster way to end your summer!

FORMAT AND RULES

The tournament is strictly mixed, which means that the amount of women on the field is minimal either two or three. During Monsterball, we are going to play according to the new rules of the WFDF about which team determines the gender ratio. The rules are explained in more detail below,

From the WFDF Rules of Ultimate 2017 Appendix:

A7.3.1. At the start of the game, after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens with the winner selecting which end zone is “End zone A”, with the other end zone becoming “End zone B”. At the start of each point the Team that is at End zone A must choose the gender ratio. This process applies for the first half. For the second half, at the start of each point the Team that is at End zone B must choose the gender ratio.

A7.4. Upon request by the opposing team captain, offensive players should await the pull, after signalling readiness, in such a way that the defence can easily determine gender matchups.

Every team will play 6-7 games during the weekend. If the time is over, you will finish the point. There is a hard cap at 15. It is possible to have an equal score.

At the semis, the same rules apply, except for the equal score. If the time is over, the point is finished and the score is equal, you play one more point.

For the final, there is no time cap: the game is played until 13 with a difference of 2 points. There is a hard cap at 15.

For all the games, it is allowed to have one time out for 1 minute. It is not allowed to have this time out in the last five minutes.
