Challenge Yourself In A Sport Bowling League
Find out how you will fare on USBC certified lane patterns dedicated to Sport Leagues and Sport Tournaments. USBC Sport Bowling is an optional membership level that gives you the chance to experience challenging lane conditions and satisfy your nature regardless of your skill.
Sport Bowling leagues and tournaments emphasize your ability to deliver the bowling ball accurately and consistently, make necessary adjustments, read lanes, and convert spares. Sport Bowling events will ultimately improve your game more than just bowling on the usual house conditions.
Today, Sport Bowling is recognized as the competitive standard in bowling. Almost every premier bowling tournament is rolled on Sport Bowling lane conditions — including USBC Championships and the Professional Bowlers Association Tour events.
To maintain the integrity of Sport Bowling events, it is critical to the Sport Bowling program that lane conditions present at the start of certified competition comply with Sport Bowling lane dressing specifications.
In addition, when using PBA Experience patterns, they should be representative of the specific PBA Experience pattern being used. Therefore, once lanes are conditioned for a Sport Bowling league or tournament, there shall be no bowling prior to the start of the competition, except for a reasonable amount of practice balls authorized by the competition, not to exceed thirty minutes.
Sport Bowling competition will guarantee that any honor score bowled qualifies for a Sport award. The Sport Bowling Manual available to the proprietors hosting these leagues has all the information necessary to explain the lane patterns designated for use in these competitions. The Manual also explains how the conditions must be monitored to ensure integrity and uniformity on all lane surfaces across the country.
It is very enjoyable to see how well you might score on Sport lane patterns versus normal house lane conditions. In fact, the USBC provides an Average Adjustment scale to help convert the differences in average from the Sport conditions to house conditions.
Sport Bowling conditions are more challenging than typical league conditions. Therefore, bowler averages under Sport Bowling conditions will typically be lower. USBC confirmed this through the analysis of scores from Sport Bowling leagues and tournaments across North America.
