Team Average Basis

Calculating handicap for a multi-player event, the averages from each player is combined to create a team average. Using this team average can then determine the team handicap.

Take a good look at the below examples. Notice that since fractions are always dropped in bowling, that there can become a difference in the total handicap for the series depending on the method chosen.

Team Average using Handicap per Series:

Bowler 1 [133]
Bowler 2 [159]
Bowler 3 [145]
Bowler 4 [153]
Bowler 5 [194]

Team Average per Game = 784

Team Average per Series = 784 * 3 = 2352

Handicap Base for 5 person team is 1150 per game.

Series Handicap Base for 5 person team = 1150 x 3 = 3450

Calculating handicap would be 3450-2352 = 1098 * .90 (90%) = 988.2.

Fractions (never round up!!!!!) are dropped to get 988 for Team Handicap for Series.

The display will show ZERO for the game handicap for the team because Series Handicap is used.

Team Average using Handicap per Game:

Bowler 1 [133]
Bowler 2 [159]
Bowler 3 [145]
Bowler 4 [153]
Bowler 5 [194]

Team Average per Game = 784

Handicap Base for 5 person team is 1150 per game.

Calculating handicap would be 1150-784 = 366 * .90 (90%) = 329.4.

Fractions are dropped to get 329 for Team Handicap for each Game.

Series Handicap would be 329 * 3 = 987.
