WFDF 1996 Rulebook.


Comment: Double disc court is a game played by two teams of two players each. Each team is charged with defending a court from the attack of theopponents. The attacks are made in two ways: by the throwing of one of two discsin play into the opponents' court in an attempt to have the disc come to rest within that court without ever having touched out-of-bounds, or by causing both discs to be touched by a player or players on the opposing team at the same time. A team scores a point whenever they make a successful attack or whenever an opponent throws a disc out-of-bounds. The first team to score the requisite number of points as determined by the competitive format shall win the game.

The purpose of the following rules is to provide a guideline which describesthe way the game is played. Disc sports have traditionally relied on a spirit ofsportsmanship which places the responsibility for fair play on the playersthemselves. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense ofthe bond of mutual respect between players, adherence to the agreed upon rules of the game, or the basic enjoyment of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate adverse conduct from the playing field. Such actions as taunting the opposing players, dangerous aggression, intentional violation of the rules, or other "win-at-all-costs" behavior are contrary to the spirit of the game and must be avoided by all players. Violations which compromise this understanding may result in penalties or disqualification by the tournament director.
