Tournament Format:

The tournament follows a scratch doubles format, where each team consists of two players with a combined average of 440 or less. Teams must be able to verify their average before participating. The event comprises two stages: qualifying and match play finals. The tournament is bowled on a challenging sport shot oil pattern, testing the skills and strategies of all participants.

Qualifying Round:

During the qualifying round, teams will play four games. Upon check-in, teams will be randomly assigned to lanes. Each bowler will bowl their own games, and the total pinfall for each team will determine the top four doubles teams that advance to the baker format match play finals. In the event of a tie, a baker-style 9th and 10th frame roll-off will be conducted to determine the advancing team.

Match Play Finals:

The top four doubles teams from the qualifying round will compete in the match play finals using the baker format. In this format, bowlers alternate frames, creating an exciting and dynamic atmosphere. The 1st seed will face the 4th seed, and the 2nd seed will compete against the 3rd seed. The winning teams will advance to the finals, where they will compete for the championship title. In case of a tie during any match, a baker-style 9th and 10th frame roll-off will determine the winner.

Entry Fee and Cash Prizes:

The entry fee for the tournament is $120 per team ($60 per bowler). The breakdown of the entry fee includes $82 for the prize fund and $38 for lineage and expenses. The cash payout ratio for the tournament is 1:6, meaning that for every six teams, one team will receive a cash prize.

Side Pots and Additional Competitions:

Participants who wish to enter additional optional competitions can join the side pots. These include $5 singles brackets, $10 team brackets, $20 high team game, and $10 high game singles.
