Florida Senior Games Qualifying Rules

Top 5 in each age group at a Series Qualifier site. Participants that qualify in one Bowling event are eligible for all Bowling events. (Note: qualifying is only applicable to the Florida resident divisions). Non-Ambulatory events do not require qualifying.

Entry Requirements

  • Bowling entry fee is $25 for the first event and $12 for each additional event for individual and doubles events for Florida residents. Entry fee is $30 for the first event and $15 for each additional event for non-residents. Entry fee includes lanes fees and an event t-shirt. T-shirts will be available on-site at designated competition check-in times. A short survey will be required to be completed at check-in. This survey can be found with the entry forms below, and can be completed in advance and brought to check-in.
  • Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles competitors must complete an Individual Entry Form and Waiver of Liability for each bowler or register online.
  • Registration will begin July 2017. All entries must be received by November 17, 2017 or register online by November 19, 2017. Late entries may be accepted at the discretion of the Event Director. Athletes registering after November 19, 2017 will not be guaranteed a t-shirt and may be subject to a $10 late fee.

  • Athletes may compete with only one partner per event.
  • Competitors are encouraged to provide their own bowling balls and shoes. House balls and shoes may be available at the competitor’s expense.
  • All equipment shall meet USBC specifications. The Florida Senior Games reserves the right to inspect equipment.
  • Doubles partners must be of the same gender. Mixed doubles will be one male and one female bowler.
  • The age division of competition for Doubles and Mixed Doubles will be determined by the younger age of the two partners.
  • Doubles and Mixed Doubles entrants must enter their partner’s name under the column labeled “Partners”.

Format

  • Tournament will be based on scratch scores.
  • Bowlers will be placed in divisions by age and gender.
  • Bowling times and lanes will be assigned by the Event Director.
  • Bowlers will bowl three games. Winners are determined by total pins over three games (same lane).
  • If there is a tie between any of the top 3 places, a one-game playoff will be held to determine which player receives the higher medal.
  • For 4th place through 6th place, ties will be broken by the number of strikes bowled. If the score is still tied, the number of spares will decide the winner.
  • There will be no tie-breaker for 7th place and below. Both competitors will receive the same place and the next place will be left open.
  • Fourth place ribbons will be awarded in addition to Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for Florida residents. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded to top overall athletes, if non-residents are in contention for medals.
