The United States Bowling Congress (USBC) has postponed or suspended scheduled national events due to concerns about COVID-19. Additionally, until further notice, USBC is suspending staff travel unless travel is deemed mission critical to the organization.

USBC state and local associations should follow state and local guidelines when considering how to handle events, meetings, and tournaments, as individual state and local requirements are evolving. USBC recommends associations be proactive in considering the well-being of their members.

USBC has developed a Frequently Asked Questions guide to assist our associations, leagues and tournaments with rules and procedures related to postponing or canceling events (see below for additional FAQs).

Best practices for tournament competition:
