Participant must be a PBA member in good standing to enter unless bowling for a college. College players can enter any PBA Tour event, with the exception of the PBA Tournament of Champions and the PBA Players Championship, after entries close for PBA members and they have created their PBA account online. To enter, call John Weber at (314) 974-5399 or email [email protected].


PTQ entries open Monday, Nov. 21 and close Sunday, Feb. 19, 2023 at 11 p.m. CT. All PBA members who are not classified as priority entrants (top 50 from the 2022 PBA Tour points list and all PBA Tour champions) will need to enter the PTQ. A minimum of eight players will advance to the elite field, with a maximum number to be determined to fill the elite field of 64. Example: If 50 point leaders and four more PBA Tour champions not among the top 50 2022 PBA Tour point leaders enter as priority entrants, 10 would advance from the PTQ, which would fill the elite field at 64.

Phone and mailed entries will not be accepted. Anyone needing instructions on how to enter online can contact membership services at (206) 332-9688.

Any entries received after the final entry deadline will incur a late fee.

PBA PTQ Entries $250 (bowlers advancing from the PTQ will be charged an additional $250)
