OFFICIAL NAPA LAGGER’S CHOICE RULES
v.1.0
TEAM MATCH PLAY RULES

1. THE LAG
To perform the lag, both shooters are to simultaneously shoot a ball from behind the head string to the foot rail and back toward the head rail. Whichever shooter’s ball
comes to rest closest to the head rail is winner of the lag. It does not matter if a shooter’s ball touches the head rail; the ball closest to the head rail wins the lag.
2. SCORE SHEET PLACEMENT
In Lagger’s Choice, the winner of the lag is always placed in the Shooter #1 position on the score sheet.
3. WINNER OF THE LAG
The winner of the lag must either:
a. Pick the game format (8-ball, 9-ball, or 10-ball)
b. Break the rack
If the winner of the lag chooses to pick the game format, he/she cannot get credit for a rackless match, even though he/she is in the Shooter #1 position on
the score sheet.
4. HOW TO SCORE RACKLESS MATCH
The only way to score a rackless match is:
a. Win the lag
b. Choose to break the rack and…
c. Shut out the opponent
5. ADDITIONAL RULES
All other NAPA game format rules apply to the game chosen after the lag.
