DEFINITIONS
The terms defined below are listed alphabetically and, when used in the text of Rules 1 to
18, are shown as underlined and in italics.
Error
A player commits an error if they play a wrong ball, commit a fault, are guilty of overlapping
play or play after play has been forestalled (see Rules 10 to 13).
Loose impediment
A loose impediment is a small object on the court surface. Examples can include worm
casts, twigs, leaves, nuts, refuse and similar material. See Rule 9.6 (Interference by loose
impediments).
Offside opponent
An offside opponent is the side opposing an offside owner.
Offside owner
An offside owner is the side that owns an offside ball.
Outside agency
An outside agency is any agency unconnected with the game except a loose impediment,
weather or a clip from another game attached to a hoop. Examples can include animals,
spectators, a referee other than the players, the players or equipment of another game,
accessories, a ball off the court or a ball to be played from a boundary and other stray
objects. See Rule 9.7 (Interference with a ball by an outside agency).
Penalty spot
The points marked D and E on Diagram 3 are also each known as a penalty spot. They are
used to define from where an offside ball is to be played from under Rule 8.4.1 and from
where all four balls are to be played from in a penalty spot restart.
Penalty spot restart
When the Rules direct that play shall continue by a penalty spot restart (see Rules 7.5.2,
10.4.1, 10.5.1 and 12.1.4), all four balls are to be next played from a penalty spot. The sides
decide the order of play by tossing a coin or by an equivalent procedure. The losing side
chooses from which penalty spot the balls shall be played. Play then continues by the
winning side playing a stroke with either ball of their side from the chosen penalty spot.
Touching the boundary
A ball is said to be touching the boundary if it is placed so that one point on its
circumference would touch a straight edge raised vertically from the boundary.
Weather
Weather includes wind, rain and any other form of precipitation. See Rule 9.5 (Interference
by weather).
