FSSC 10 Pin Bowling Rules
Each team will play 3 games per night
Each team is allowed (6) players on a team
4 players play each game
BEGINNING OF THE GAME
The first game will begin when both teams have at least 2 people (1 must be female) as close to the beginning time as possible. Forfeits will be called at 10 minutes after the start time if a team cannot field a legal team. Teams shall field no more than 4 players on the lane at one time in any given game. Team Captains must advise League Director by calling or email if using a substitute player. This action must be done at least 2 hours prior to play. Substitute players must complete a waiver form prior to play. Only 6 people will be allowed to score for each team. If substitutes are used outside of these six people, they must check-in at the front counter.
Teams must have at least four players (1 female). If the team does not have a female player, the team will record one loss of three for the night. Teams may play with any amount of men or women. This is offset and balanced by individual handicaps. If a player(s) is/are absent, their average and handicap will be utilized, minus ten pins. Note: Each location has their own methods.
All players and teams will receive scratch scores and Handicap scores. Scratch scores are the actual amount of pins that a person knocks down in a given game. A Handicap score consists of the amount of pins knocked down added to the person’s Handicap. A Handicap is figured by taking a person’s average and subtracting that average from 200. A person’s handicap is updated and changed each week after the results from the previous match are talleyed (your hadicap always reflects how you are doing over the course of the entire season). 200 is the Handicap score base used for all bowlers.
Handicap Example: Bowler’s Average = 105; Handicap = 200-105=95
If above bowler bowls a 107, the handicap score is 202 (95 added to pins)
If above bowler bowls a 100, the handicap score is 195 (95 added to pins)
Teams will play against another team for three games each night. Each game will be worth 1 win to the team that bowls a higher total team handicap score. A team will receive a win for total pins after all three games have been played. All together 4 wins are presented for the league night.
If a new player(s) bowls and every other player has a handicap score established, the new player(s) will have theirs computed based on the number of games that they bowled that evening and their handicap will also be added in to the teams overall score.
Standings will be based on points won for each game played and for each night’s series winner. During the last week of play, teams will be seeded to play the team closest to them in the standings. It is a position week, so any team that is within seven points/wins of the top team will have a chance at winning the league. All other teams are playing for final positioning. The final week of the league is that playoff/position week and that schedule will be posted after the scores have been recorded for the final week of regular season play. Note: If a team has more than 4 core players, they must play the four players with the most shows during the season in the playoffs – must include 1 female player. ( No exceptions )
