  1. This will be a Singles Tournament (Males and Females compete together – No age criteria).

You may REGISTER upto 10 Participants in this category.

(a) Each contest will be of 3 boards (A contestant who wins 2 boards out of 3 will be declared as the winner regardless of board points).
In case 2 straight games are won by a participant – the 3rd game will NOT be played.
The winner of a game/board will be the player who pockets all the coins of his colour (black/white) from the board.
(b) The referee will do the toss by hiding the 2 coins (black and white) in each palm and asking one team member to choose. The winner of the toss (who chooses the correct colour) strikes first. Strikes will be alternated after each board.
(c) The first player breaks using his/her index finger by flicking the striker in a forward direction towards the center formation of Carrom pieces.
(d) Incase you bag only the striker, the player will play a “Due” which will be placed within the big concentric circle and the opponent plays thereafter.
(e) NOTE: No “Due” coins can be placed in the smaller concentric circle.
(f) If the red piece / queen is pocketed, the player must then pocket one of their own carrom pieces in the same turn. Should the playyer fail to pocket a piece, then the queen must be replaced in the centre of the carrom board.

(h) Incase the striker is pocketed BEFORE you have pocketed a single coin of your colour – the due is exempted.
