Every team has at official tournaments the right to demand per game two time outs. At a time out the players are allowed to leave the table for 30 seconds (starting at the stop of the ball). A Time Out only may be demanded by the team who is in ball possession. If the ball isn’t in the game, every team may demand a time out. If the time out ends, the game will be continued in the same way it stopped. The ball is in the same position as it was when the game stopped.
Individuell rules for the time out are also possible. The are made up by the responsible tournament organizer.
