Hello,

I need some information about how bowling leagues work. When league teams compete against each other, how does it work? In my scenario, I have two teams competing, each team playing two games. They play the two games at their own pace, and one team finishes the two games 1/2 hour before the other team does. Is this realistic? An editor wondered if the teams take turns bowling frame by frame.

Thanks for your help!

That's not the way it works. It's been a long time since I was on a league, but the teams bowl together in order. I think we switched sides too. You bowl one frame on your lane and the next frame on the attached lane. (We did that before electronic scoring. Not sure if the new systems handle that, but it makes up for any faults in the lanes since everyone bowls on both.) Watch the pro bowlers on TV or online if you can. You'll get a feel for how it's done.

The only thing that would make one finish sooner is fewer people, but it wouldn't be that much sooner.
