Yes. While a union may prohibit union workers from working non-union jobs, in the sport of Bowling, there is nothing that prohibits a sanctioned bowler from participating in non-sanctioned events.

However, if a bowler in a non-sanctioned league wishes to bowl in a sanctioned tournament, there may be rules that prohibit the bowler from participating, or require the bowler to purchase a sanctioned card and/or require, if a tournament that uses handicap, to use a higher average or not receive handicap.

Can you get a 300 ring in a non sanctioned league?

Only games bowled under a sanctioned league may receive recognition by the sanctioning organization that the league sanctioned with. For example, if the league is based in the US and did not sanction in USBC then scores will not be recognized for any USBC awards, including the 300 ring. Even if bowlers who are members of a non-sanctioned league bowl a 300, they can not qualify for any USBC awards if the league did not sanction.

Can someone bowl two handed and one handed in the same game?

First Response:During sanctioned league or tournament play, the bowler must consistently use the same hand throughout the league or tournament. If the bowler wishes to use both hands, he would have to use the right for one league or tournament and the left for the another. The bowler will have a sanctioned average for each hand.Second Response:According to rule 118, a right handed bowler must always bowl right handed and a left handed bowler must always bowl left handed.A bowler may use the two handed approach at any time during competition as long as they continue to bowl with the same dominant hand. For example, a bowler may bowl one handed right handed. They can at an time use the two handed approach as long as they continue to release the ball with the right hand.The exception to this rule is that if the player is injured and cannot continue, he may finish with his other hand, but must establish a new average with that hand.This information was received from Derek Eoff (whose email address may be found in the links section below), who handles rules questions for the USBC (United States Bowling Congress).
