IMPORTANT: PBA FACE MASK POLICY

The use of face masks is required of all people in the bowling center during the PBA event. Masks must cover the nose and mouth and remain in place at all times, except when bowlers are standing at, or on the the approach ready to make a delivery, or “actively” eating or drinking. This is mandatory for all portions of the PBA event, including practice sessions and pro-ams, and includes all amateurs and professionals. This policy will be enforced strictly in the bowling center throughout the PBA event with fines and possible disqualification for non-compliance.

Online entries for members and non-members close at midnight on Sunday, August 1st.

Balance Holes
Beginning August 1, 2020, the use of a balance hole is prohibited. The rule states all holes in a bowling ball must be used on every delivery; any hole not used is considered a balance hole, making the ball illegal. Bowlers who do not use their thumb no longer can have a thumb hole, as it now is considered a balance hole. They also need to mark their ball to show where they place their palm on delivery.

W-9 Forms
IRS is requiring that we get new W-9 forms for all bowlers who earn winnings in PBA events. Players that have filled out W-9’s in 2020 and have recently changed residence will need to fill out an updated form. This requirement pertains to all participants, whether you are a member or not.
