Rules and other FAQs of Dual Duel
1. What are teams made up of?
2 person teams
2. What is the format?
Pools are 5 touch bouts with only one touch needed against the team, meaning not both teammates have to be "out" to score a touch.
DEs are 5 touch bouts but both team members must be tagged.
3. How does that work?
In pools, 2 people teams fence each other at the same time. Any fencer can hit the other team whether they are in front of them or crossed diagonally. Only one touch against any of the other team is needed. Double touches count as double touches.
In DEs, same rules apply, but only one person per team can be tagged out at a time unless its a double. If team A tags one person on Team B, then it will be a 2 vs 1 situation. The Team with both members still in will start at their back warning line and the single team member will move all the way up to start the touch. Once one team is tagged out completely, the touch is awarded and it starts over again. If there is a 1 vs 1 situation and a double touch is scored, both teams are awarded a point unless it is a la-belle situation.
