Bowling Rules

HANDICAP BOWLING LEAGUE RULES

1. Teams

Teams are made up of 4-8 people including the captain. Your team is not eligible to play until you have at least 4 members accepted/paid on your team. If you do

not have enough members by the time registration closes, you will either have random members added to your team or, if the league is full, have your money refunded to your credit card.

Teams may have any number of men/women, there is no requirement to be co-ed, though most teams are.

2. Scheduling/ Matches

Each team plays seven matches over the course of the season, one each week. Each match is against one opponent (except on rare occasion of a bye-week). Each match consists of 4 bowlers bowling 3 games. Teams may mix and match bowlers from the roster for each game, but only 4 bowlers may bowl each game.

3. Scoring

All players earn a handicap score which gives each bowler a chance to help his/her team. 4 weekly points are available for teams - 1 point awarded to each head-to-head game (3 total) and 1 point for over point total over the 3 games.

4. Substitutions

If you do not have at least 4 people present, you may still bowl and we follow absentee scoring for the missing bowler. Absentee scoring consists of taking the missing bowlers average score minus 10 pins. In the case of having more than one bowler absent, we will take the next lowest average score and subtract 10 pins.
*We encourage you to find subs for missing roster players by asking friends and/or co-workers, however their score will not count and the Absentee scoring will still be implemented.

5. Standings

Team standings are determined by the overall points earned. In the common case of teams have the same record, standing are then determined by scratch scoring per team.

6. One person may not bowl under multiple names in a game.
FUN BOWLING LEAGUE RULES

1. Teams

Teams are made up of 6-10 people including the captain. Your team is not eligible to play until you have at least 6 members accepted/paid on your team. If you do not have enough members by the time registration closes, you will either have random members added to your team or, if the league is full, have your money refunded to your credit card.

Teams may have any number of men/women, there is no requirement to be co-ed, though most teams are.

2. Scheduling/ Matches

Each team plays seven matches over the course of the season, one each week. Each match is against one opponent (except on rare occasion of a bye-week). You have approx. 2 hours to bowl, and get in as many games as you can before your time is up. You must then choose the top 4 scores from your best game.

3. Scoring

Though there are 6-10 people on a team, only the top four scores of one particular game count. YOU MAY NOT MIX-AND-MATCH SCORES FROM MULTIPLE GAMES. This scoring setup means that you shouldn�?�¢??t be afraid to recruit fun people to your team just because they aren�?�¢??t ringers �?�¢?? because only the top four scores matter anyways.

There are no handicaps in Better Off Bowling.

If you do not have at least 4 people present, you may still bowl, but each person�?�¢??s score may be only counted once, so you will be at a disadvantage. Incomplete scores may be counted, but you may not extrapolate or �?�¢??average out�?�¢?? what you would have scored.

4. Standings

Team standings are primarily determined by the win-loss-tie record. In the common case of teams have the same record, standing are then determined by season average.

On the last (8th) week, the 1st ranked team will play the 2nd ranked team, 3rd will play the 4th, and so on. The championship decided by the outcome of the 1st place and 2nd place team.

5. One person may not bowl under multiple names in a game.
