Format and Object of the Game

The game of 8-Ball is played with fifteen (15) balls numbered one through fifteen and a cue ball. The object of the game is to pocket either all of the “low balls” (solid numbers 1-7), or all of the “high balls” (striped numbers 9-15), after which you are entitled to shoot and hopefully pocket the 8-Ball. Once this has been done, the player legally pocketing their balls and the 8-Ball wins. TAP is a "Call Pocket " League. Now that you know the format of TAP Team 8-Ball you can find the Guidelines of rules for the Team 8-Ball Format.
