COURT- The game is played on a prepared surface called “The Court”. Some refer to the playing area as a “Board”.
HEAD- The head of the court is located at the end of the court where the scoreboard is located.
FOOT- Is the opposite end of the court from the Head.
CUE- The Cue is used to deliver a disc. It is often referred to as a “Stick”.
LAG- In tournament play, lagging is used to determine which color of discs a player will choose. A player lags by delivering a disc to the far lag line. The player whose disc is closest to the lag line gets to choose color. Starting the game with yellow discs means you will have the hammer in the final frame.
LAG LINE- Is the line that crosses the court above the scoring area. A disc not reaching the lag line is called a “Dead Disc”. A disc touching any part of the lag line is “In Play”.
HAMMER- Means having the last disc of the frame.
KITCHEN- The Kitchen is the area at the end of the court directly behind the 7 Scoring area. Any delivered disc stopping in the kitchen is a loss of 10 points.
