A unique scoring format known as the "Baker" system is used at most collegiate bowling events and has ranked college tournaments among the most exciting in all of bowling. Why not inject that kind of excitement into your Bowl for the Cure® event? From no-tap tournaments to cosmic bowling, the abundance of formats and activities at your disposal is bound to make it as fun to plan an event as it will be to participate in one.
- Baker System: Play in the baker format isfast-paced and fun. All team members follow each other in regular order to bowl a single game. The lead bowler rolls the first frame followed by the No. 2 bowler rolling the second frame; the No. 3 bowler, the third frame; the No. 4 bowler, the fourth frame; and the No. 5 bowler, the fifth frame. The lead bowler then continues the game by bowling the sixth frame, and so on. The No. 5 bowl errolls all balls in the tenth frame.
- 9-Pin No-Tap: Add some excitement to the traditional bowling experience and make your event a "no-tap" tournament. Bowlers leaving only one or two pins on their first throw will be awarded with a strike. This results in quicker game play, higher scores and larger donations to Bowl for theCure®.
- 3-6-9 Game: In a 3-6-9 game, each bowler automatically receives a strike in the third, sixth and ninth frames to combine the best of the baker and no-tap formats with high scores and fast-paced games.
- Best Ball: In the "Best Ball" format, a combination of any two bowlers is allowed. Each bowler rolls one ball each frame. The better of the two balls is the score entered for the team. There are no spares recorded since the pins are reset after each ball thrown. The exception to this is the tenth frame where scoring is regulation for each bowler; i.e., if a strike is bowled on the first ball, the bowler would then roll two extra balls.
