UNIFIED DOUBLES – Partners will use the Bakers System (Alternate frames 0Unified Partner bowls 1 frame, athlete bowls 1 frame) Unified Doubles pairs must have a 4 game average.

Cost of Bowling will be $2.50 per game and $1.00 for shoe rental (financial assistance is available if you need help paying for practice games. We do not want anyone who is interested in participating to be limited in doing so due to financial difficulty)
