*Teams for the Round-Robin Baker Style Match Play Finals will be paired according to their qualifying position, senior qualifier #1 with Super Senior qualifier #1, etc.

*The number of finalists will be 16 from each division as long as both divisions have at least 48 bowlers. If the field size in either division is less than 48 bowlers the number of finalists will be reduced to a full 1:3 ratio (and a round number of teams) based on the division with the lower number of entries. Example: If one division has 42-47 players, the number of finalists will be adjusted to 14 in both divisions.
