All refereeing decisions are to be resolved by the Chief Referee of that particular game, the 2011 WGU Gateball Rules changed the rule about ‘Time Out’, it no longer exists in the current rules, therefore the Tournament Referee CAN NOT be called or be involved with a decision during the game, stopages during the game to question or clarify a rule or a referee’s decision is part of the game time (within the 30 minutes) and the clock doesn’t stop.  You can consult the Tournament Referee after the game has finished.

Recorders need to complete the Gateball Record Sheet completely and correctly so that the information contained within can be utilised to conduct a thorough analysis, as well as indicate whether the team that won the toss won the game, how many rounds per game, last player number to play, etc.
