      -           Two games per day per team;
      -           If travel between sites is required, equal distribution of travel;
      -           If courts have varying playing surfaces, all teams should have the opportunity to play on all
                  surfaces.

          All games must start on time according to the official schedule. Any team not ready to play at the
          scheduled time and place shall forfeit the game by a score of 10:0. If the schedule of games or the location
          must be changed during the competition, then the affected teams must be provided with adequate notice.

          The team roster of sixteen (16) players and four (4) team delegates for each game must be submitted to the
          scorer's table in the designated gymnasium at least twenty (20) minutes to the start of the game.

          The competition schedule shall be designed in a fair manner, with the duration of the games following the
          international rules: 2 X 30 minutes for senior, 21 and under men’s and 20 and under women’s categories.

          For the youth category, the duration of the game will be twice 25 minutes.

      Only the CTHF can approve a change in the duration of the games.

3.4   COMPETITION FORMAT

      For the Preliminary rounds, the scores will be evaluated as follows:
                Match won:      2 points
                Match tied:     1 point - for each team
                Match lost:     0 point

      Classification will be made according to the points accumulated. If two (2) or more teams are tied after all
      matches have been played, the final classification shall be decided as follows:

      i)          Should 2 teams be tied, the result of the match between the respective teams shall determine the
                   standing.

      ii)         Should 3 or more teams be tied, the team with the greatest goal difference of only the games
                   between the tied team(s) shall be the higher placed team.

      iii)        Should 2 or more teams still be tied the team with the greatest goal difference shall be declared the
                   winner, results of all games shall be considered.




                                                          10
              Goal difference is determined by goals for, minus goals against.
                            TEAM A 20 for - 10 against = +10
                            TEAM B 21 for - 12 against = +9
                                      TEAM A WINS

iv)     Should 2 or more teams still be tied, the team with the lowest goals against shall be declared the
         winner, results of all games shall be considered.

v)      If classification is still not possible, it will be decided by lot. Lots will be drawn on the spot by the
         CTHF representative, if possible in the presence of the representatives of the teams concerned.

In all cases, (Round Robin or otherwise), a minimum number of four games and a maximum number of
eight games per team, with at least a final round between the two teams with the best record, may be
scheduled. The CTHF shall have the authority to decide whether a final round shall or shall not take place
regardless of format used.

In games where a winner must be declared, the following rule will be applied to all undecided matches:

a)      In drawn matches in the final round - after an intermission of 5 minutes - a first period of extra
         time of (2 x 5) minutes without interval, with change of ends will be played.

b)      If the match is still not decided, after an intermission of 5 minutes, a second period of extra time of
         (2 x 5) minutes without interval, with change of ends will be played.

c)      If the match is still drawn, the teams will proceed to Penalty Throw Format:

        i)         For the penalty throws, each team shall nominate five eligible players who ill take it in
                   alternate turns with their opponents to throw once each. A list of the names and numbers
                   of the throwers has to be handed in to the referees. The five players may throw in any
                   sequence.

                   The goalkeeper may be chosen to change at will.

                   The referees shall decide which goal is to be used and toss for the team to start.

        ii)        The team which wins the toss, throws first. If the game is undecided after the first round
                   of throws, five chosen players (either the same five players, or a change of one to five
                   players on a new list shall continue to throw until a result is achieved" in this case means:
                   (1) if for example the team throwing first fails to score, the other team must
                   score to win, and (2) if the team throwing first scores and the other fails to score, the first
                   team wins. The same system will be followed up until a decision is reached.

 Players who have been sent off or disqualified are not allowed to throw penalties. Bad conduct during the
 penalty throws shall be punished without exception by disqualification. If a player becomes injured, an
 eligible substitute must be nominated and given to the referees.

 While penalties are being thrown, only the player taking the throw, the defending goalkeeper and the
 referees are allowed on that half of the court being used.
