- 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 is implemented 2 hours and 30 minutes into a Ladies match. The rack must be struck in the third individual match by the 2-hours-and-30-minutes mark, or all subsequent individual matches will begin with a rack worth two team points. If that two-point rack mathematically wins the team match, the team match will be over; if it does not win the team match, a second rack worth one team point will conclude that individual match. This procedure will continue in each subsequent individual match until a team mathematically wins or the overall match finishes in a tie: one two-point rack, followed by a one-point rack if necessary. Tie breakers will be decided by the team that won the most individual matches. NOTE: During Ladies Sudden Death, the individual match winner will be the player who wins the two-point rack.
