I joined 2 summer leagues this year, and i find both of them odd. One is our doubles league which is in 2 halves and is won by pin count and has a 90% 220 handicap. I don't understand why they have a league which promotes Sandbagging so heavily. I know not everybody will do it but it only takes one team to screw up the fun of the league. If you can win the first half your going to get 1st or 2nd place money so pin count no longer matters. It's to easy for that team just to throw off for the rest of the 2nd half and build up handicap to have a better chance at 1st place. Or throw off the 1st half and build up a handicap for the 2nd half.

our other league is a 179 and under scratch league in which they match people up based on their avg. last week i bowled a 183 avg and won all my matches by 50 pins. It would be easy to bowl under your avg to continue bowling people with 130 avgs and keep winning games.

So why do they have leagues built this way the doubles league is built more like a scratch league and the scratch league is built like a handicap league.

the team handicap in the winter i bowl in although people can sandbag its not quite as benificial b/c of the uncertanity of what the other team will do in the 9th and 10th frame. and the fact that their is money won based on games won for each team.

in the summer leagues the doubles pay 1st and 2nd place a auto amount. and in the scratch 1-4 win a auto amount.
