I would say there's no upper limit unless you're married and the spousal unit wants you to stay home.

Another pair of eyes is necessary to see what in your game can be improved. Whether a teammate or a coach or the coaches here.

Agreed with all the above. One league for me frown
I do miss the other pair of eyes on my league team as he helped me alot

The 3 leagues that I bowl in are all different.

The first league is a mixed league I bowl with my wife and another couple. It is a fun league on a house shot.

The second league is a competitive men's league with 5-man teams. It is a money league on a house shot.

The third league is a PBA experience league. It is competitive, but most bowlers are there to learn the patterns.

I would not give any of them up, nor do I feel compelled to join any additional leagues. For me, I suppose three is the ideal number of leagues.
USBC (2008-2016):
300s: 9
800s: 7
House: 239
Sport: 210

PBA (2014-2015): $850

Heavy: Nano, HyperCell, Eternal Cell
Medium: IQ Tour, Tour SiC, Tag
Light: Spare+, Tank, Rebel Tank
Spares: WD

Last year, I bowled in 3 (Mon Mixed, Wed Men's, Thur Men's) and bowl for practice/fun on either Friday and/or Sunday. It took a toll in my wallet & time. Also when I used to bowl allot of games on Sunday, due to their quarter mania ($6 cover & .25/game), my arm felt dead on Monday. So this year, I don't practice the day before any leagues. I also cut down to 2 leagues (Mon Mixed & Wed Men's)

I'm in three (same house) and sub for a fourth (different house) and practice on Sunday mornings when I can. Two of the leagues are back to back on Thursday's (6:30 & 9:00). During the winter I rather go out and bowl instead of watching some of the cr*p that's on TV these days.
