Midwest USA Adult-Junior Doubles Championships Rules
Schedule: This is a USBC-certified (#07934) scratch doubles bowling tournament. The tournament will be held
on Saturday, April 4, 2015 at Beaver-Vu Bowl 1238 N. Fairfield Rd., Beavercreek, OH 45432. 937.426.6771.
Doors open at 8:30 AM. Check-in begins at 8:45 AM. Warm-ups at 9:50 AM. Tournament play begins about 10:00
AM Eastern time, subject to on-site adjustments. A team will consist of one adult bowler and one youth bowler.
There are two divisions: a division for an adult bowler teamed with a youth bowler age 14-19 and a separate division
for an adult bowler teamed with a youth bowler age 13 and under. The youth bowler’s age on August 1, 2014 will be
the determiner of division enrollment. The gender of either the adult or the youth bowler is NOT a consideration. A
male may bowl with a male or female, or vice versa. Maximum number of teams: 155 total.
Format: Qualifying Round: Each team will bowl a Qualifying Round of four (4) games of regular tenpin bowling.
32 teams in the 14 & older division and 12 teams in the 13 & under division, based on total team Qualifying Round
scores, will advance to the Championship Round. Championship Round: The scores from the Qualifying Round
will be dropped. All Championship Round games will be Baker games in which the youth bowler will bowl the evennumbered frames and the adult bowler the odd-numbered frames. Each team will bowl two (2) “Baker” games with
each game bowled entirely on 1 lane, switching lanes on the pair after each game. The field will be cut after each 2
Baker game set based on the team’s 2-game Baker total. There will be four (4), 2-game Baker sets in the 14 & older
division and three (3), 2-game Baker sets in the 13 & under division. The number of teams that will advance after
each Baker game set will be posted in the tournament office. Championship Round Placement: In both divisions,
higher placement in the final tournament standings will be based on the scores rolled in final two (2) game Baker set
in which a team participated. Ties: all ties for any advancement will be broken by a 9th/10th frame roll-off in which
the adult bowler will bowl the 9th frame and the youth bowler the 10th frame.
Lane Pattern/Surface: The lane pattern will be a “challenge” series pattern. Beaver-Vu Bowl has a Brunswick
ProLane synthetic lane & textured approach surface.
