Terms and Conditions
By entering the BVIT Coast to Coast Phantom League, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to the Terms and Conditions outlined below.
Failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions will result in your immediate disqualification from the league. Entry fees will not be refunded.
All Bowlers who wish to participate in the Phantom League must be current financial members of Blind and Vision Impaired Tenpin Bowling Australia.
This League shall be open to Blind and Vision Impaired Bowlers from across Australia who meet the BVIT Eye Classification criteria of B1, B2, or B3, and who have forwarded their current eye classifications to the League Secretary prior to commencement of the League. The league will be run for 18 weeks, starting on Monday 18th July and run until Sunday 4th December, 2022 (excluding school holidays). It is the responsibility of Bowlers to send their scores by tea time each Sunday to the League Secretary – email@example.com – or by text or telephone.
Scores will be from the first two games of the nominated league. If a Bowler participates in more than one league during the week, the Bowler must nominate ONE League only prior to commencement of the Phantom League, and shall only send in the TWO game scores from that nominated League. Bowlers who do not participate in a League will send their two (2) game results from the nominated day they bowl. Each week’s scores will be collated by the League secretary and processed by the ComputerScore (ComScore) system.
Weekly results will be posted on the BVIT web page as soon as practicable. These results will not be available from any other source. No details will be made available to bowlers other than those scores published on the BVIT web page.
Final results will be based on the ComScore final week standing sheet.
The management of the Phantom League will be vested in the Committee of Blind and Vision Impaired Tenpin Bowling (Aust).
The cost to bowl in the league will be $10.00. Payment must be deposited into the BVIT General Account prior to the commencement of the season.
If a bowler chooses to leave this league by any means at any time, and for any reason, no monies will be refunded.
Monies received by BVIT for the Phantom League will be held in the General Account until the completion of the League.
All monies held will be paid out in full for the following:
- First Place
- Female / Male high game/series (scratch) will be awarded based on ComScore’s final week standing sheet.
- The next places will depend on the number of entering bowlers and the number of weeks competed
Due to Privacy considerations, details of these pay-outs will not be published.
League average / handicap will be calculated after six (6) games have been bowled. Bowlers entering the League mid-season will use their HIGHEST League average for their first three (3) weeks of play (6 games).
The Handicap allowance will be 100% of 200 Scratch.
LEGAL LINE UP
This is a Singles format league
BYES and FORFEITS
If a Bowler fails to submit their bowling scores for any nominated week of the Season, then they will automatically forfeit their points for that week. The opposing Bowler for that week will receive points only if they bowl their average less 9.
The only time a vacancy score will be used is if the League has an uneven number of Bowlers participating, only then the vacancy score will be 100/100.
The five (5) point scoring system shall be used. Two (2) points for each game won and one (1) point for overall. All points will be allotted for games including handicap, won and lost.
A Bowler who enters the competition after the Season commences shall assume the same number of points as the Bowler in last position on the League Schedule, and will qualify for prizes provided the Bowler has participated in at least two thirds of the season.
Any protests affecting eligibility or general playing rules must be confirmed in WRITING to the President, or a Committee Member of BVIT, no later than seventy two (72) hours after the League standing has been posted on the website.
DISCREPANCIES and COMPLAINTS
Any discrepancy or complaint pertaining to the running of the League is to be submitted via email to the President, before bowling commences for the following week, and will be resolved by the Committee of BVIT.
In the event of a tie, results for that placing, prize money will be equally distributed.
The League will allow pre-bowling with NO restriction.
