The Weber Cup will use the World Bowling scoring system for the first time when Europe and the United States meet later this month in Manchester.
The tournament, established in 2000, is the tenpin bowling version of golf's Ryder Cup, as two four-man teams from Europe and the US compete over three days in a series of matches.
It will be the first time, however, that the tournament uses the different scoring system, which maintains the traditional 10-frame format but awards 30 points for a strike.
Ten points are given for a spare, plus the pin fall of the first shot in the frame, and the actual pin fall after two shots in an open frame.
The maximum score is still 300 with this figure based on the player receiving 10 consecutive strikes with no bonus pins being awarded in the 10th frame.
"We've often felt that traditional bowling scoring may be a little harder to follow for the casual fan watching on TV," said a spokesperson for Matchroom Sport, the organiser of the Weber Cup.
"With that in mind we believe that World Bowling scoring will simplify things whilst not detracting from the traditions of the game."
Since its inaugural event in Warsaw, Poland, the Weber Cup has taken place exclusively in the UK.
After 16 years the score currently stands at 8-8, after Team Europe registered a resounding 17-8 victory last year, giving them their third consecutive tournament win.
Europe is once again captained by Dominic Barrett who is making his ninth appearance in a European shirt.
Also back is Stu Williams for appearance number six as well as Sweden's Martin Larsen, who is yet to taste defeat in the in four previous Weber Cup outings.
The Americans are this year captained by legend Parker Bohn III, who made his debut in 2015.
He is joined by Wes Malott, who impressed in his previous two outings despite being on the losing side.
