Where there is 40 points possible a night. 100% handicap league you bowl the person on the other team that bowls in the same postion as you do. If you bowl 1st you bowl the 1st bowler on the other team. If you average 190 and they average 180 you give them 10 pins a game. You have to beat them by 11 pins each game to get your point for the game. There is 1 point for each bowlers game and 1 point for their total series. Total of 4 points for each bowler 3 games plus their series. The team gets 5 points for each of the the total game and for the total series.
