Indalo Bowling Club

Indalo Bull Hong Kong Pairs League

All games will be played in line with the Laws of the Sport of Bowls.                 


The format is of  “ Hong Kong Pairs “ ie : 2 – 4 - 2


Pairs can be of any combination.

Pairings may consist of  bowlers of any handicap combination.


All games will be played over 18 ends.


2 points will be awarded for a win and 1pt for a draw.  If there is a tie to decide the winner in each division then shot difference will count, and in the unlikely event of there still being a tie then the result of the game between the 2 teams concerned will count to decide the group winners.

The semi-finals shall be contested by the winners of  groups:  A  v  C   &   B  v  D


In each game, the team with the lowest team handicap will be given the difference between their team handicap and their opponent’s team handicap as a shot difference “head start”.  e.g.  Team A’s joint handicap is 11 and Team B’s joint handicap is 10. Then team B will have 1 shot on the board before commencement of the game.  The winners will be the team with the most number of shots after 18 ends. 


Two trial ends  are  allowed.


If an end is “killed,” ie: the jack goes out of the rink of play, then the jack will be

re-spotted on the crosses either side of the tee.


There  are  no  restrictions  on  visiting  the  head.


Substitutes can be from any handicap category, the scorecard shows the combined handicap of the original team, if a substitute of a different handicap is used then the

combined handicap for that team must be adjusted before commencement of the match.


If a team is not available to commence play 15 minutes after the scheduled start time,  the match will be awarded to the opposition.
