League Rules

  • Players who cannot attend a game night may pre-bowl before the game night. To do so, please call AMF to make sure they have lane availability before you go. They will provide you with a slip of paper to write down your scores and then turn them in. 
  • Each night, teams have the chance to get 4 points (1 for each game won and 1 for total pin count over the 3 games).
  • The top 4 teams in the league will compete on playoffs night and the two teams that win will advance to the championship. 
  • In the event that two teams have a tie score leading up to or on playoffs night, the team that has the higher pin count will advance to the next round. 
  • Scores are tabulated each week by AMF. We do not usually have access to the score sheets until Sunday nights but if we receive them earlier, we will send them out to the league. 

AMF League Discounts
