I run a bowling league at work which is currently teams of two people bowling once a month against another team. Teams organise a match with their opponent so generally there are matches throughout the month.
I am looking to make it more social to try and get more people involved. My initial thought is to remove teams altogether and make it an individual league. On a set day each month everyone who can make it comes along and bowls (so there will be a larger group i.e. more social). Points are allocated based on each individual's final position on the night (over two or three games).
I am trying to think of a points distribution so that skilled players are rewarded but also people who turn up every month are rewarded as well. I also want to keep it relatively simple to avoid putting people off.
I'm just posting here looking for peoples thoughts on a league like this. I realise I can't please everyone but open to suggestions on how to shorten the gap between competitive and casual players.
Any ideas welcome, many thanks in advance.
