Two players per team. Play will continue unless there is lightning, thunder or other dangerous weather conditions.

Returning Winner Rule – For any team that won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place the prior two years, the players must return for the next two years with a new partner who has not won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in the prior two years.

Whack and Roll provides mallets for players.  Novice division players must use the provided mallets.  Open division players may use their own mallets not exceeding 9″ head length.
