Celebrating our 31st Anniversary every month!


Tournament Rules

By Andres Padilla

Trophies will be awarded for both men and ladies that attain 1st, 2nd , and 3rd place High Handicap Series (HHS) and top Handicap Game (HHG).

If two or more bowlers are tied for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place HHS, the trophy would go to the bowler with the highest handicap game. Conversely, if two or more bowlers are tied for the top HHG, the trophy would go to the bowler with the highest handicap series.

Note: Earlier this year we changed our scoring system to a handicap format to provide for a more balanced competitive platform.  Now, literally anyone can earn top handicap game and series score. 

Nearly 80% of men and ladies that have bowled at least 3 times this year have earned High Handicap Game and/or High Handicap Series honors.  In other words, on any given day anyone can bowl the top handicap game or series.




The Spanish American Club, Inc. (SACI) Bowling Group


September 19, 2022. By the Bowling Committee: Ruben Aleman (Director), Andres Padilla and Herman Santa


The SACI Bowling Group began in 1992, to bring together bowlers of all skill levels and to foster camaraderie, sportsmanship and friendly competition among Hispanic players from USA, the Caribbean, Central and South America. We are happy that the group continues to grow, now to over 30+ players, and we are thankful for our bowlers’ donations to our scholarship program.


SuperPlay, 1600 NW Courtyard Cir, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986-2508 Tel. 772-800-7328



Every Monday at 6:00 P.M. Please arrive at least 15-30 minutes early to facilitate lane


Lane Assignments:

SACI would normally occupy lanes 35 through 46. All bowlers MUST first register with

Ruben Aleman (or his representative) and pay lane fees at the sign-in table. Bowlers will be assigned to a pair of lanes in groups of 4 to 8 people at the director’s discretion.

Bowling starts promptly at 6:00 pm with 10 minutes of practice followed by three games

using the standard 10-frame format.

Handicap Scoring Format:

Scratch bowling scores are recorded and verified by the bowlers assigned to each lane.

The scoring official will convert scratch scores using a handicap format based on a

formula (90% of 200) and the bowler’s average. The scoring official maintains and

publishes statistics weekly for each individual bowler including cumulative

scratch/handicap averages, current handicap values, and high

scratch/handicap game and 3-game series.

Handicap Prize Pool:

Each week bowlers have an opportunity to compete for the Handicap Prize Pool. The

purpose of the Handicap Prize Pool is to reward the bowlers that attain the Highest

Handicap Game (HHG) & Highest Handicap Series (HHS). Each participant who wishes to enter would pay $1 to compete for a portion of the prize pool. The scoring official will collect and keep track of the prize money each week and pay it out to the winners in January, June, and September corresponding to the Fall, Winter, and Summer seasons respectively.

50/50 Raffle:

A 50/50 raffle is conducted at the beginning of each month with proceeds to benefit the

SACI Scholarship Fund.
