The basketball competition will be conducted under the rules set down by Basketball Australia except where modified by the following:


The competition will be an open team event on a round robin basis. Body contact is to be kept to a minimum. There must be at least one female on the court at all times and a maximum of four males. There must be at least four players to start the game. Each game will start with a jump ball contested by a player from each team. The directional arrow will determine any further jump balls during the course of the game, including during any overtime.

Male players can NOT block a female opposition player’s shot. The male defender may stand in his defensive cylinder only. Any shot blocked/rejected by the male defensive player will be deemed a violation and the points awarded to the female player (two or three points depending on the location of the female at the time of the shot).

Any foul contact will be called according to the normal rules, with the female player awarded two or three points depending on the location of the female player at the time of the shot plus the female player has the opportunity to take the extra shot. However if the referee calls an offensive foul the ball will be awarded to the defending team in accordance with the normal rules.

Playing time will be two, twenty minute halves. Each team will be permitted two time outs per half which may be taken at any time. The games are not “fully timed” i.e. the clock stops only for time outs, and every whistle in the last minute of the second half. Players are allowed five fouls per game. On the sixth foul the player must leave the court. The half time break shall be three minutes.

If the scores at the end of the preliminary games are tied, a draw is the result, and points are awarded accordingly.

Ladder points

Points will be awarded as follows:

  • win—3 points
  • draw—2 points
  • loss—1 point

In the event of a forfeit the team that is available to play shall be awarded the winning points. For the

purposes of ‘for and against’ the score line will be twenty-nil (20-0). 


The two top teams after the round robin will play off in the final. In the event of a tie, five minutes overtime will be played. One time out is allowed per team. If the score is still tied a free throw shoot out will be conducted with each player on the court after overtime having one free throw each. Coin toss to decide who goes first. If still tied, each team will nominate one team member to compete in a sudden death free throw play off.


Gold and silver medals will be presented after the final for the teams that made the final.
