Different leagues have their own ways of deciding what the overall match score is. Bowrap understands quite a few of these scoring schemes already. If yours isn’t covered, just send me details and it can included in a later release.

There are four general-purpose schemes:


Aggregate
Aggregate 15

These are common schemes, where the match score is just the total of the players’ scores. They work for games of 21-up or 15-up.

These methods are used for the following leagues (amongst others):
  • Alderley & District
  • Altrincham & South Manchester
  • Altrincham LV
  • Barkston Ash
  • Cheadle & Gatley
  • Congleton
  • Knutsford
  • Macclesfield
  • Malpas
  • Matlock Singles 15
  • Matlock Singles 21
  • Mid-Cheshire
  • Mid-Cheshire Ladies
  • Sale & District
  • Stockport & District Veterans
  • Stockport Metro Indoor
  • Stockport Parks
  • Norley
  • North Derbyshire*
  • North Derbyshire Ladies
  • Warrington & N. Cheshire Wednesday league (up to 2004)
* In the North Derbyshire league, players may play twice if a team is short, incurring a ten point penalty.

Pairs aggregate
Pairs aggregate 15

The same principles apply in pairs leagues, including:
  • Matlock Doubles 15
  • Matlock Doubles 21
  • Stockport & District veterans

Other leagues award match points based on games won and scoring the most chalks. Bowrap handles the following leagues:

  1. Plus 10 points divided between the teams: the team with the higher aggregate score receives one point for each 10 chalks (or fraction) of their aggregate lead; the remaining points up to 10 awarded to the losing team.
  2. Plus 1 point for higher aggregate over home and away matches (½ point for a draw).
  3. 15-up league.
  4. Each team has a “home” and an “away” handicap. The appropriate figure is added to the chalks scores to determine the aggregate winner.
  5. The first game in each match is pairs. Other games are singles.
  6. Plus 1 point for higher aggregate over home and away matches.
  7. Points are awarded according to players’ scores: 0-4: 0 pts; 5-9: 1 pt; 10-14: 2 pts; 15-17: 3 pts; 18-20: 4 pts; 21: 5pts.

Further scoring schemes are available for leagues which don’t fit into the above patterns:

  • In the Bramhall Indoor league players compete in triples over a fixed number of ends. Two match points are awarded for a win, and and one for a draw.
  • In the Isle of Man league, the match is won by the team which wins most games. Two points are awarded for winning a match, and one for a draw.
  • In the Manchester Indoor league four players per side compete (as a foursome) over a fixed number of ends. Two match points are awarded for a win, and and one for a draw.
