Sacred Heart league voted to end their league as it stands due to Covid-19


Sacred Heart Bowling League -  2019-20 Season -  Start Date 9-12-19


  • A calendar of dates when we will not be bowling (holidays, etc.) will be provided to everyone in the next few weeks. We will bowl a total of 29 Thursdays, per our agreement with Fiesta Bowl.

  • We paid $14.00 a week last season and will pay the same amount of $14 for 2019-20. 


  • If you cannot bowl on any given week, you are responsible for getting your own sub.


  •  If a regular bowler needs a sub, then the sub bowler will pay $7.00 and the regular bowler pays $7.00.  If you write a check, please make it out to Sacred Heart Bowling.


  • There is an envelope provided for your team and mark the amount paid IN PENCIL PLEASE in the box that corresponds to your name and date of bowling. You can pay in advance with cash or make checks out to Sacred Heart Bowling League. If you pay in advance, please put the total amount of money paid in the box next to your name.


  • Today we pay for the first week & last week.  Only mark the ‘total’ that you paid next to your name on the envelope each week.  Do not mark anything in the ongoing weeks please.


  • If you have a sub, then the money ($7.00) the sub pays is to be recorded in the box/date that corresponds to the person they are replacing and NOT on a separate line.


  • Once we get started today, please choose a team name. Also, please choose a captain for your team.


  • We will be using each person’s handicap from last season for the first three (3) weeks of bowling. After a person has bowled nine (9) games [3 weeks], the handicap for the next fourth week of bowling will be based on their average for those nine (9) games. If a permanent bowler does not bowl one or more weeks at the start of the season, then their handicap will be last year’s handicap until they have bowled nine (9) games.


  • A new bowler is any bowler who did not bowl in the previous Sacred Heart winter bowling league and/or who did not bowl at least nine (9) games in that league.


  • A new bowler’s average and handicap and/or a new substitute’s average and handicap will be established after the first three (3) games they bowl and the handicap established will be used for that week and the next time they bowl. This is exactly the same as last year.


  • If a returning sub bowled at least nine (9) games last season, then their handicap will be last year’s handicap. After the sub has bowled nine (9) games this year, then their handicap for the next time they bowl will be based on the nine (9) games bowled this year.


  • Our league uses 90% of a 210 score to establish the handicap.


  • Lanes will be cleaned and oiled before our 2:00 pm league.


  • Fiesta Bowl will turn on the lanes at approximately 1:50 PM for practice, with league bowling starting at 2:00 PM.


  • There will be an awards banquet at the end of the season.

  1. The league is not a sanctioned league.

  2. The minimum number of regular bowlers needed for a team to not forfeit is 1 bowler.

  3. If you miss bowling for a week & did not have a sub, you still pay $­­­14.00 upon your return for that week.

  5.  Subs may

  6. If a team will have all of its bowlers missing on a given Thursday, they may ask the team captain of the team they are going to bowl, if it is acceptable for them to either pre-bowl and/or bowl after that week of bowling.
