Ten Pin Bowling Rules
Men and Women will compete in separate divisions in 5-year age groups (50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90-94, 95-99, 100+). The Event Host will provide the bowling balls.

A) General

  • Each contestant will bowl three games. Winners will be determined by total pin fall in the three games plus handicap.
  • The handicap for each game will be 90 percent of the difference between bowler’s average and 200. In case of a tie for any medal spot, there will be a two-frame roll-off (9th and 10th).
  • A bowler who arrives late to the event will be assigned 0 pins for every frame missed to that point.

B) Bowler’s Average To Determine Handicap Will Be Assigned As Follows:

  1. Highest Washington, DC Area Association book average for the prior season.
  2. If no book average exists, a verifiable average for the prior season in any unsanctioned league with a minimum of 21 games bowled may be used.
  3. If there is no book or verifiable league average, then use Bowl America’s prior season (minimum of 9 games) Senior’s monthly tournament average.
  4. If there is no average from the book, any league, or Bowl America, then an average of 150 will be assigned for men and 135 for women.
