    Default Bakers doubles?

    Never bowled in one but my center has a tournament in a few weeks and wife mentioned about entering it with me. I know we would have no chance at winning. I have a 191 book average from last year and hers was 112. Handicap is 80% based on 220. My question is, and this may be a local question, but she is not bowling in a league this year but does have a USBC book average from last year but is no longer a current USBC member. Is she still eligible? It is sanctioned if that matters. I will call them to verify but figured I'd ask here.

    Rev Rate about 325 @ about 16 MPH at the pins* High Game: 279 - High Series: 725

    If it is a Certified/Sanctioned tournament, She would need to have a Current USBC card. She should be able to get one at the tournament, It doesn't have to be through a league.

    As for entering average, it would depend on what the tournament rules are.

    Right handed Stroker, high track ,about 13 degree axis tilt. PAP is located 5 9/16Ē over 1 3/4Ē up.Speed ave. about 14 mph at the pins. Medium revís.High Game 300, High series 798

    In Baker format two or more people bowl a single game. In doubles you would probably have your wife start and bowl the odd numbered frames, you would bowl the evens and finish. The events Iíve been involved with have all been scratch.

    You can do the USBC certification online at bowl.com - this would make checking in at the tournament much easier. Just be sure to have your receipt on your phone or paper copy. Good luck and keep us updated if you bowl. I'm curious how the handicap would work.

    It says handicap is based off your combined average 'average'...lol. So mine at 191 and hers at 112 gives us about a 150 average. 220-150 *.8 would be about 56 pins handicap
