  • Each team consists of 9 players
  • Single innings will consist of chasing and running turns with 7 minutes duration. Each match will consist of two innings
  • An interval of 5 minutes is allowed after an inning and 2 minutes between two turns

The side of the chasers scores one point for putting out each runner.

The chaser or runner has the option to end the turn before the expiry of the allotted time.

The captain of the toss winning team will have the choice of chasing or running.

At the commencement of the game the eight chasers (players sitting in the squares) will sit in the squares facing opposite directions. No adjacent chasers should face in the same direction. The 9th chaser will stand at either of the posts.

The runners will fix their entry serially with the scorer.

With the commencement of the game three runners are to get inside the court. As soon as a runner is put out the next three runners must enter the field before “kho” is given. If a runner fails to enter the field, he is given out.

A runner goes out by the following means:

  • If touched by a chaser
  • Fails to enter the field when a runner is given out
  • If he touches the seated chasers twice or after receiving a warning for similar infringement

Rules for the chasers:

  • When an active chaser lets go his hold of the post or goes beyond the rectangles he is known as leaving the post

Scoring in Kho-Kho

The side of the chasers scores 1 point for putting out each runner. If one team scores 9 points more than the other team, the winning team may ask the losers to chase without losing their option to chase afterwards. A substitute shall be allowed to replace an injured player at the discretion of the referee.

Officials in Kho-Kho

Two Umpires:

They supervise the game in their respective halves, divided by the centreline. A foul is indicated by continuous short whistles till the foul is corrected. An “out” is declared by a short whistle.


The referee helps the umpires and gives the final decision in case of any difference between them.


He keeps the record of time and hands it over to the scorer at the end of an innings. He starts the turn by blowing a whistle: one long and one short. The end of the turn is indicated by a long whistle. Scorer: Keeps a record of runners who are out and makes them sit. Assistant Scorer: He helps the scorer.

The object of Tug-of-War is to pull the other player or team across the centreline. To do this, you must use a rope and pull against one another until they come across the line in any way, or if they choose to forfeit. Each side must have 7 players.

As mentioned earlier, the centre of the rope should align with the centre marked on the ground. As soon as the referee blows the whistle, each team can start pulling the rope into their territory. The objective of the game is for each team to pull the rope along with the members of opposition team to their side. As soon as the second mark on the rope from the centre red mark crosses over to centreline, the team to pull the rope to their area wins the game.

The tug-of-war competition requires a judge. There are 3 different commands that the judge gives to the players. The judge first announces “Pick up the rope”, he then says “Take the string”, and finally he tells the players to “Pull”. Once the pull command is said out the teams start pulling Eathceh rtoepaem. If s ah malel mcobnesrt oitfu tthee 7te palmay fearllss. down that member is given a caution. Each team is allowed two cautions before getting disqualified. Each one will get 3 chances.

Fouls: There is a particular technique that needs to be applied while playing this game, if not then there will be a foul which can call in for disqualifications. For e.g. lowering your elbow below the knee level while pulling the rope is considered to be a foul and is called ‘locking’. Touching the ground for a longer period of time is also considered as a foul.

Fouls and Violation


Personal fouls: They can be any type of illegal physical contact.

• Hitting • Pushing • Slapping • Holding •Illegal pick/ screen – when the opposition player is moving. When an opposition player physically obstructs a defender to block his path.

Personal foul penalties: If a player is being obstructed, while shooting, then he is awarded two free throws if his shot
doesn’t go in, but will be only one if his shot does go in.

  • Three free throws are awarded if the player is fouled while shooting for a three-point goal and they miss. If a player is
    fouled while shooting a three-point shot and makes it anyway, he is awarded one free throw, making him score four points on the play.
  • Inbounds: If fouled while not shooting, the ball is given to the team the foul was committed upon. They get the ball at the nearest side or baseline, out of bounds, and have 5 seconds to pass the ball onto the court.
  • One & one: If a team commits seven or more fouls, then the fouled player is awarded one free throw. If he makes his first shot, then another is awarded.
  • Ten or more fouls: If a team commits ten or more fouls, then the fouled player is awarded two free throws.

Charging: An offensive foul that is committed when a player pushes or runs over a defensive player. The ball is handed to the opposite team.

Blocking: Blocking is an illegal personal contact, resulting from a defender not establishing position in time to prevent an opponent’s drive to the basket.

Flagrant foul: Violent contact with an opponent. This includes hitting, kicking, and punching, resulting in free throws plus the offense retaining possession of the ball after the free throws.

Intentional foul: When a player makes physical contact with another player with no reasonable effort to steal the ball. It is a judgment call for the officials.

Technical foul: A player or a coach can commit it which does not involve player contact or the ball but is instead about the ‘manners’ of the game. Foul language, obscenity, obscene gestures, and even arguing can be considered a technical foul, as can technical details regarding filling in the scorebook improperly or dunking during warm-ups.


Walking/Traveling: Taking more than ‘a step and a half’ without dribbling the ball is traveling. Moving your pivot foot once you’ve stopped dribbling is traveling.

Carrying/palming: When a player dribbles the ball with his hand too far to the side of, or sometimes, even under the ball. Double

Dribble: Dribbling the ball with both hands at the same time or picking up the dribble and then dribbling again is a double dribble.

Held ball: Occasionally, two or more opposing players will gain possession of the ball at the same time. In order to avoid a prolonged and/or violent tussle, the referee stops the action and awards the ball to one team or the other on a rotating basis.

Goal tending: If a defensive player interferes with a shot while it’s on the way down towards the basket, after having touched the backboard, or while it’s in the cylinder above the rim, it’s goaltending and the shot counts. If committed by an offensive player, it’s a violation and the ball is handed to the opposing team for a throw-in.

Backcourt violation: Once the offense has brought the ball across the mid-court line, they cannot go back across the line during possession. If they do, the ball is awarded to the other team.

Time restrictions: A player passing the ball inbounds has five seconds to pass the ball. If he does not, then the ball is handed to the other team. Other time restrictions include – a player cannot have the ball for more than five seconds, when being closely guarded and in some states and levels, shot- clock restrictions requiring a team to attempt a shot within a given time frame.

  8. 8-Ball Pocketed on the Break
    If the 8-ball is pocketed on the break, it will be declared as the win of breaker
