TBA have released V11.9 (8th March 2019) of the “League, Tournament and General Playing Rules”. The new version has four changes from the previous version:

  • Rule 122
  • Rule 302
  • Rule 403
  • Rule 805.9

Rule 122 and Rule 302 have the most importance to the general bowler.

Rule 122 (average – definition of)

Old wording

A bowling average is determined by dividing the total number of pins credited to a bowler by the number of games bowled in one league in a season.

When establishing an average in league play, a right-handed bowler must bowl right-handed at all times in that session. Similarly, a left-handed bowler must bowl left-handed at all times in that session. Refer to Rule 128.4 for what defines a session of games. Penalty: forfeiture of game.

No combination of scores bowled both right and left-handed will be used in computing an average. A new average must be established if the bowler finds it necessary to change his delivery from right to left-handed or vice versa. Refer to Rule 212 for further details on deliveries.

In all cases, extra pins or fractions must be disregarded when using averages for handicapping or classification purposes. The extra pins will be reduced to a percentage of a pin only for the purpose of deciding individual position standings in a league.

In league play, no upper or lower limits in average can be set by the league

A new average must be established if the bowler finds it necessary to change his delivery from right to left-handed or vice versa. Refer to Rule 212 for further details on deliveries.

In all cases, extra pins or fractions must be disregarded when using averages for handicapping or classification purposes. The extra pins will be reduced to a percentage of a pin only for the purpose of deciding individual position standings in a league.

In my personal opinion, I think this change could have easily also been placed in Rule 312 (Entering Averages).

Rule 302 (League – Management)

Old wording

Every bowling league will have a Constitution/rules that provide for the league’s regular activities. The Constitution/rules will provide for the election of its Officers and a Management Committee.

Each league will elect a President, Vice-President (at least one), Secretary and Treasurer, who must all be registered with TBA and be in good standing with the local centre/Association. The offices of Secretary and Treasurer may be combined, but no other offices may be combined. The supervision of a league consisting of intellectually handicapped or Junior bowlers may be by an adult guardian who is not intellectually handicapped. The guardian will assist in the setting up of a Management Committee and Officers and guide in the administration of the rules of the league The Local/Regional Association may appoint any current member who is registered with TBA in good standing, as guardian of such a league.

No business shall be transacted at any League or Committee meeting unless a quorum is present. The quorum shall be a majority of the persons entitled to attend and vote at the meeting.

Rule 403 (Awards – Yearly Awards)

The rule adds a clarification that “All Over Average awards are based on an average achieved over 9 or more games.”

Rule 805.9

This rule refers to accredited tournaments and that conditions cannot change without the approval of the accreditating authority (TBA).
