Format and Object of the Game
Team Tap 9-ball is played with nine object balls numbered 1 through 9 and the cue ball. On any shot the cue ball must contact the lowest numbered ball on the table first to begin a legal shot.
Once you have contacted the lowest numbered ball, any completions that follow allow you to continue your turn at the table.
On balls numbered 1 thru 8 the shooter does NOT have to call their pocket. A player wins the game when he/she has legally pockets the 9-ball in a called pocket.
