The game time begins with the starting whistle for throwing. During the game automatically ends once the signal given by the scoreboard clock or timekeeper. If such a signal is given, the referee whistles to indicate that the time of the game ended.

If there is no scoreboard clock with automatic end signal timekeeper will use a table clock or a timer, and will signal the end of the game with a final signal.
Misbehavior and unsportsmanlike conduct occurred before or simultaneously with the signal end (the first half or the game) should be punished too, even if it is not possible to signal the end of the game. The referees signal the end of the game only after execution of the necessary free throws (except free throws) or 7-meter throw and was determined their outcome.

The disposal should executed, if the end signal (the first half or the game) when the roll call or the 7 meters are in progress or when the ball is already in the air. The immediate result of the throw must be established before executed referees whistle the game.

Players and team officials should be sanctioned for personal or unsportsmanlike conduct violations committed during the execution of a free throw or 7 meters. An offense committed during such an execution cannot determine, however, a free throw in the opposite direction.

If the arbitrators find that too early to signal the end of the game (the first half or the game), they must keep players on the court during the game to play left.
The team that was in possession of the ball when it was heard early the signal of the end of the game will remain in possession of the ball when the game will be resumed. If the ball was in play, the game is restarted with a throw that corresponding to the situations. If the ball was in play, the game is restarted with a free throw.

If the first half of the game (or overtime) ends too late, the second half of the game (or overtime) must be shortened accordingly. If the second half of the game (or overtime) ends too late, the referee cannot change anything.

A team that tried a quick counterattack of their own half of the field, but cannot take a position to score a goal, after reaching the middle of the field effect must be allowed to make rapid change of players, at this stage.
