THE WEPF WORLD RULES WERE VOTED IN AT THE 2006 AGM AND HAVE BEEN ADOPTED ACROSS THE LEAGUE FROM THE 2006/07 WINTER LEAGUE SEASON ONWARDS.
The World Rules were adopted by the EPA on 1st January 1998 as the playing rules for use in all nationally organised events.
For those players who are new to World Rules or are unsure on a few things, there are a couple of useful graphical explanations of some of the basics of the game:

There is also a new set-up of the colours in the triangle for World Rules.
Players who have any queries regarding these rule changes should contact the League Secretary for clarification
The result card format for league matches is alternate break (4 breaks per side) with a set order for the second half. Half-time substitutions can still be made. A coin should be tossed at the start of each match to decide which team breaks first. The order of play in the two halves is illustrated below.
