  • Play lasts for four periods of seven minutes actual playing time. There is a two minute interval between each period for changing ends.
  • Players in the water may only leave at an interval when injured or with the referee's permission.
  • For an accident or injury the referee may suspend play for up to three minutes.
  • If there is a tie and a definite result is required, there is a five-minute break, then two periods of three minutes' play with one-minute interval between. This pattern is continued until a decision is reached.
