SCORING:

  • A game is played in 10 frames.
  • When all of the pins are knocked down with one try, the score given in the frame is 10 plus the total of the next two throws.
  • When all of the pins are knocked down in two tries, the score given in the frame is 10 plus the total of the next throw.
  • If all of the pins aren't knocked down, the score given for that frame is the number of pins that were knocked over.
  • The winner of a game is the player who achieves the highest score in the 10 frames.

Host organisers usually arrange games with 4 players to each alley.

Consult your Team Leader or Tournament Coordinator for assistance in understanding or explaining the use of special aids or scoring procedures.
