- 3-Point Scoring System
- Player A wins with a shutout; they win 3-0.
- If Player A wins, but Player B wins a game, Player A gets 2-0.
- If Player A wins, but Player B makes it to the hill, the split is 2-1.
- Sudden Death will be in effect if the first rack of the third individual match is not struck prior to the match time reaching the 2-hour-and-30-minute mark. The first rack of the first individual match started after Sudden Death is in effect, will be worth two points. If the two points awarded to the winner of that rack gives that team enough points to win the team match, the team match will be over. If the two points awarded to the winner of that rack are not sufficient to decide the team match, the same players will play a second rack worth one point to conclude the individual match. If the one point awarded to the winner of the second rack is not sufficient to decide the team match, and the teams have not yet played three individual matches, the teams will play subsequent individual matches, each consisting of up to two racks, with the first rack worth two points for the winner’s team, and the second rack worth one point for the winning team, until one of the teams mathematically wins the team match, or until the teams have played three individual matches in which case the team match ends in a tie.
