TEN PIN BOWLING LEAGUE 2018

HANDICAP RULES

Handicaps are calculated as follows:

BASELINE - AVERAGE GAME SCORE x PERCENTAGE FACTOR (0.9)

Where the baseline is a theoretical unattainable average by any one player in the league (170)
and the percentage factor is league standard between 0.8 and 1.0

 

XMAS HANDICAP

6 Games must have been played to get a Xmas handicap and be elligible for the winners trophy.
You can still take part on the night but a handicap will be awarded to you based on everyones average.

Xmas handicaps are calculated as follows:
The highest and lowest scores are deducted from the table once all games in the season have been played.
The handicap for the competition is then based on the average of the remaining scores
and calculated in the same way as individual game handicaps.

Now we all have a handicap from the previous year it will enable a bit more re-calculating to take place.
It is expected that we all improve over the year, anyone with a lower handicap than the previous season will
have it increased by their improvement factor.
eg. If your Xmas handicap last year was 50 and this year it is 55 and your improvement score is -5
then your Xmas handicap this year will be 50!
If your improvement score is +ve then your handicap will not be ammended.

Juniors are not subject to the above ammendments but are not elligible to win the handicap trophy either.
