Join A League Today!
At Columbia Bowl we have different types of bowling leagues including traditional bowling leagues, different scoring methods like 9 Pin No-Tap (9 or more on your 1st Ball counts as a strike), different prizes (some leagues have cash prizes, or trophies and others have fun licensed merchandise).
You can even bring along 10 or 20 of your best friends, form your own bowling league and set your own rules (within reason). We are here to help you get into a league!
Bowling League FAQ
A bowling league is a group event where several teams bowl against each other over the course of a season. Most bowling leagues consist of teams of 3-5 players that meet up once a week or once every other week, usually at the same day and time. Leagues can be set up as male-only, female-only, or mixed.
With bowling’s unique handicapping system, the lower your average the more “handicap’ you get, so no need to be the best bowler to be competitive!
Each session, each team in the league faces one other team. In most bowling leagues each team plays three games per scheduled match. After the first week of the league, the average for each player is set, and the average can go up or down after each subsequent session as more games are bowled.
Leagues normally consist of weekly sessions at Columbia Bowl that require each bowler on a team to bowl three games per week (or more/less depending on the league’s rules).
In a given weekly session, your team will face another team in the league in scheduled competition.
Joining a league is a GREAT way to make new friends! If you do not have a team we can place you with other cool people like you, and in the type of league that fits perfectly. We have a league format at Columbia Bowl that is just right for anyone!
Scoring systems vary by league. But, usually teams are awarded points for winning each game, plus points for having more total pins than the other team at the end of all games that week.
Some leagues have special prize funds accumulated by a small weekly fee (above that which is paid to the bowling center) that can fund prizes at the end of the season.
No, but you can save your money like Dad told you and buy a nice sensible sedan with good gas mileage. 🙂
