Bowling Leagues

HUB Quarterly Bowling Leagues:
Doubles League for Spring 2021

HUB Games hosts quarterly bowling leagues in partnership with the IMA and their recreational sports program. League play is held every Fall, Winter and Spring Quarter. For Spring 2021 teams of 2 bowlers will play in divisions during the round-robin regular season with playoffs to determine the final standings. Competition is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and Faculty/Staff members. HUB Bowling Leagues adhere to the IMA rules found in the IMA Intramural Sports Handbook (online) as well as the following HUB Bowling League rules:

Casual Bowlers: Teams will be placed in a competitive or casual division depending on their skill level.  Sign up and jump in even after league season begins and bowl in the league casually to improve your bowling and become a part of UW’s growing bowling community.

Team Entry & Player Game Fees

💲 Each team must pay the $10 TEAM ENTRY fee prior to the first league game. Additionally, team members will each pay a $7.50 WEEKLY GAME fee for each week they bowl. This weekly fee will be collected from every bowler before each match and will cover the cost of shoes and of bowling their 3 league games for that week.  Note: practice games, by reservation for Winter 2021, will be charged the league price of $2.50 per game.  Please inform the counter staff you are on a league team so you get the discount.

Rules specific to COVID during Spring 2021:

  • Due to state regulations all bowlers must wear a face covering at all times while in HUB Games, even while in the act of bowling
  • After league play bowlers MUST leave any house bowling balls at their lane for HUB Games staff to clean/disinfect
  • There will be a strict maximum of 4 bowlers per lane with a lane closed between bowlers to ensure physical distancing
  • HUB Games staff will disinfect the settee area of each lane after use


The Team Captain is responsible for submitting the Team Roster prior to the Friday before league play begins and for noting any subsequent roster changes. The Team Captain is responsible for finalizing the roster before playoff matches begin. Teams with unapproved bowlers will forfeit any bowling matches the unapproved bowler participated in.

Team Members

Teams can have any combination of men/women on their team. Only current UW students, faculty, and staff are allowed to bowl for a team. Each individual may only play for one team per quarter. HUB Games staff will check Husky ID cards when teams reach the playoff rounds and bowlers will only be allowed to bowl if they are listed on that team’s roster.

Bowler’s Names

Bowler’s “actual” first names must be typed into the bowling touchscreens prior to bowling that weeks’ first game. If teams need to change bowlers for the 2nd or 3rd game, please select the “Bowlers” button on the touch screen for the option to remove or rename bowlers.
Note: Up to 8 bowlers may bowl each game, with the top 4 scores from each game being recorded for the team’s official score for that game.

Match Times

Teams may choose from the following times for their league bowling each week: Monday-Friday at 10:30am, 1pm or 3:30pm.  Teams will be assigned one of their preferred time slots and be expected to bowl at that time.
Note: HUB Games will make every effort to hold lanes for teams that choose one of the above times.  Teams choosing a custom start time may need to be flexible with their start time some weeks based on availability of lanes.

Pre-Bowling or Post-Bowling: If a bowler or team cannot attend their scheduled time slot for that week, then a bowler/team may pre-bowl for a specific week by bowling their games in advance for the upcoming week. Bowlers can also post-bowl, in which bowlers have 24 hours after their match start time to come in and bowl their games. Bowlers who do not bowl within 24 hours of their league time will be scored absentee scores for that week.

Bowling Equipment

All bowling equipment (balls, shoes) will be provided by HUB Games. The cost of rentals for these items is included in the weekly match fee of $7.50 per player. Please Note: By choosing to use personal equipment (shoes or bowling ball) bowlers do so at their own risk.  HUB Games will not be responsible for repairing or replacing any personal equipment in the event of damage or loss.

Food & Drinks

All food and drinks shall be left on the ledges on the back of the seating or on the counter tops above the bowling ball racks. No food or drink is allowed on the lanes.  Bowlers may pull down their masks temporarily while in the act of eating or drinking snacks purchased from HUB Games.
