REPLACEMENTS - Before the start of the discipline, a team may be altered but the controlling body must be informed. After the competition has started the Controlling body can approve the introduction of a replacement player to take the place of a player who cannot play in any round after the first round (Law 55.3.3). The replacement can play in any position in the team but must not be a member of another team entered in the same discipline.
SUBSTITUTES - If a player has to leave the green during the course of a game due to illness or some other reasonable cause and cannot return within 10 minutes, Law 33 will apply. In the case of a singles game, the defaulting player will forfeit the game (Law 33.7). In the case of a team game, a substitute may be introduced (Law 33.2 & 3) with the approval of the Umpire or Controlling Body. The substitute must play in any position other than skip(Law 33.4) and must not be a member of another team entered in the same discipline. Once this substitute has played 2 games, the original player may not return to the team, (unless another member gets ill or has to withdraw for some reasonable cause.)
