Laws of The Game - The laws governing the "long game" as played in Wales and Scotland

For ease of organisation, it is anticipated that most of the matches will initially be played to the existing laws of the game as played between Scotland and Wales currently.  The Welsh Quoiting Board would welcome contact from players of other versions of the game, including youngsters, with a view to incorporating games played over shorter distances
