Rec Ball Surrender Rules What do you use?
Posted 01 June 2006 - 06:16 AM
Does the player who is on the receiving surrender have a choice or is he out no matter what? What are your fields rules?

Instead of bunkering someone though, there is the bunker tag. You touch the bunker that the player(s) is behind and he is out.

Surrender is a courtesy to a player, which you have the drop on. Your position is one of complete dominance. You are usually to close to shoot safely and so you offer surrender. If the person does not wish to accept your offer he may turn and try shooting you.
It is more of a judgment call and difficult to call as a Ref in a rec game.

It also depends on the situation. I was playing the other day at a field which had a 10-foot surrender rule. There was this kid on the opposite team who just surrendered a couple of guys on my team. He didn't see me and I was about 10 feet away from him behind a tall bush. There was also a lot of fighting around me and I wasn't sure who was where. I didn't want to waste time asking for surrender, because some one else might notice this bunch of players in one area (the other surrendered guys were still there), so I stepped back a foot or so and shot him once in the side of the head. It hurt and he wasn't happy, but this isn't golf. A head shot is the only shot I had, unfortunately, but it worked out well for me. It definitely comes down to judgment and the situation.
Also, it was pointed out to me that some fields only suggest that you surrender someone. That means it's a courtesy, not a rule. If I was playing in like a urban field and came around the corner to find someone there, I'd probably shoot, point blank or not. If it's allowed. Same thing when I run up on a bunker.

In recball, however. My friends usually play as such:
Barrel/Hand Tag-Mandatory surrender, you're out, you're ashamed, get off the field.
15" Surrender Rule-Ask for surrender at 15", they've got two seconds before they get shot in the pod pack (probably the safest place to shoot someone, if you can hit it)
Those seem to work to keep people from getting massive welts.
