The Hapco Substitution Policy
Priority is given to play Hapco rules, which requires 3 women vs. 3 women. It can be played 2 women vs. 2 women at the discretion of the captains. It also can be played with up to 4 women vs. 4 women. If one team has more women than the other, the team with the fewer women is not obligated to displace one of their men by taking the extra women from the other team UNLESS it allows for Hapco rules. Instead the extra woman can play as a man and sub accordingly. However, under no circumstances will a woman who is not on either team ever be given priority over a man who is on one of the teams scheduled to play.
