With just one round to go SteveC deftly gets in his qualifying 6th match and records his 5th win to make his points average look unassailable. He cannot be overtaken if he sits on his laurels, content with no better than 9th position in the Best 10 Games rankings. Those rankings are more interesting with three players vying for supremacy with one round to go. Rob’s 10th best result is 2 points so he needs to secure 6 points in the last round to have any chance of finishing on top.

League Organization and Rules
League matches are played on Wednesday evenings during the summer season. Players who have arrived by 6pm to participate are assigned to teams (pairs or triples) for that evening. Team and opponent selection will aim to set up contests that are slightly but not fully graded in terms of bowling ability. Typical ‘Pennant’ conditions of play apply except as stated here. Matches will be 10 ends. There will be no trial ends. There will be no dead ends – jacks propelled out of bounds will be respotted on the 2m mark. Tied ends will count as ends and be scored as 0-0.
Individual league standings will be determined by points awarded as follows. Each player in a winning team will receive 6 points for a win of 7 shots or more, 5 points for a win of 4-6 shots and 4 points for a win of 1-3 shots. Each player in teams that draw will receive 3 points. Each player in a losing team will receive 2 points for a loss of 1-3 shots and 1 point for a loss of 4-6 shots. So players are rewarded more generously for bigger wins but are also rewarded for keeping losses to a minimum.
Season end prizes will be awarded to players with the 1st and 2nd highest points accumulated from their best 10 scoring rounds. Players with more than 10 scoring rounds discard points from their weaker rounds. This is so that even players who participate only half the time can compete for a ‘Best 10’ prize. A season end prize will also be awarded to the player, who is not a Best 10 winner, who achieves the highest points per game average over a minimum of (provisionally) 6 games.
