In the online rule book at bowl.com, it can be found in rule 118b-Commonly Asked Questions. It is 118b/3.

Rule 118b also states: A bowler using a two-handed delivery will establish an average with two hands. When the bowler changes to a one-handed delivery, they must establish a new average using that hand.


What if the person switches for spares?

I think the spirit of the rule for people to not sandbag, I guess.


You can switch to one handed for spares and vice versa as long as the ball is in the same dominant hand. USBC release a statement about that on the bowl.com website either last year or the year before. That is for adults, I believe in youth leagues/tournaments they have to use one or the other.

I believe that is false, as handicap isn't the reason for the rule. Averages are still maintained and all USBC sanctioned averages have to be maintained using either one hand or the other and no combination of both.
