5. Starting and re-starting the game

The game is started with a ‘tap-off’ involving one player from each team within the centre circle.  Any player may take the tap-off.

The players may tap the ball twice after the referee has tossed the ball to reach the highest point.

Neither of these players may catch the ball nor touch it again until it has touched the floor or another player (see BWB rules for starting game on website if further information required).

The second half is started by the team who lost position at the tap off (in accordance with the alternating possession rule).

6. Alternating possession

Teams will alternate in taking possession of the ball on every held-ball situation (two or more players per team have hands on the basketball at the same time).

The team that does not gain possession from the tap-off will be first to start the alternating possession process
