If there is a tie in any game during the round robin matches a 9th 10th frame roll off will be held to be played by the athlete who bowled the 10th frame in the game, repeated until the tie is broken. The team with the highest ranking, after Round 1, will decide who will bowl first and on which lane the frame will be bowled. If there is still a tie a further 9th 10th frame roll off will be held with the starting team and lanes reversed. This will be repeated until the tie is broken.
The top eight teams in the men’s division at the completion of round two will advance to the quarter finals. The top 4 teams in women’s division will advance to the semi-finals.
If there is tie for position eight (men), or position 4 (women) then a one game roll off will be played repeated until the tie is broken. The team with the highest ranking, after Round 1, will decide who will bowl first and on which lane the game will commence. If there is still a tie a further game will be held with the starting team and lanes reversed. This will be repeated until the tie is broken.
Ties for seeding in the top 8 (men)/ top 4 (women) will be broken by the highest ranked team after qualification.
