MATCHES is an online bowling competition concept by Lanetalk. In this guide, we go through all the necessary parameters. Later, when you create a Match and define your match settings you will see this concept has endless possibilities.

Pick any Match type, and you have created yourself a competition. Or put several together, configure each step to suit your format, and you have a tournament.

Here are four examples:

Suppose there are several bowling clubs in your bowling center. The clubs want to compete in a small competition. First, you create a Qualification match open for everyone. Two weeks later, you create a Final for the top 20 from the Qualification. The Final match is using a password that you distributes to the finalists.

There are several Bowling Clubs and Bowling Centers in the City. They want to create a tournament where they nominate the best Bowler in the city. They create one qualification match for each center and then, they invite the top 10 qualifiers to the city Final.

Suppose the national bowling team in Sweden and USA wants to nominate the year’s best bowler. Then ask Lanetalk (Super Admin) to set up five Global Matches and find out who’s the champ.
