NEW AGE KURLING
Festival Format
New Age Kurling is a sport that requires participants to deliver stones from one end of a court to a target at the other end of the court. The competition target has red, white and blue concentric circles and scoring is determined by the number of stones closest to the centre of this target. Each game will normally consist of an even number of ends.

Scoring
For a stone to score it must land on the scoring part of the target breaking the plane of the scoring zone with any part of the body of the stone.

The scoring stone(s) must be closer to the centre of the target than any of the opponent’s stones.

Example:  In a team competition, a team can win by the total number of stones used by that team. Therefore, each player in a team of four will deliver two stones and the winning score can be from 1-0 to a maximum of 8-0 per end.
The cumulative total of all scoring stones for all ends in the game will decide the winner of the game.
A tied end will be scored 0-0 and will not be replayed. A tied end occurs when both teams have stones in a scoring position which are equidistant from the centre of the target and cannot be separated by a measure.

BOCCIA
The Festival Format
Boccia is an attack and defend game, with two sides competing over a set number of ends. The aim is to score as many points as possible by placing their set of coloured balls closest to the white jack ball.
All players must be seated during a game
A game consists of a series of ends
Singles & Pairs = 4 ends
Teams = 6 ends
An end consists of all 13 balls being propelled onto court (the jack, 6 red and 6 blue)
Decided using a coin toss, the winning player/captain chooses to be red or blue
Both sides must occupy a designated box on the court from where balls are propelled
The red side always begins the first end by propelling the jack into court
In a team match each player propels the jack onto court in turn
The player who propels the jack ball also propels their first coloured ball
A player from the opposite side then propels their first coloured ball
The side not closest to the jack plays until they get closer, or run out of balls
The end is complete when all balls from both sides have been propelled
One point is awarded for every ball of the same colour, which is closest to the jack
Points scored each end are accumulated to give a final score.
