Participant must be a PBA member in good standing.


PTQ entries open Monday, Nov. 21 and close Saturday, April 15 at 11 p.m. CT. All PBA members who are not classified as priority entrants 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 128. Example: If 50 point leaders and 30 more PBA Tour champions not among the top 50 2022 PBA Tour point leaders enter as priority entrants, 48 would advance from the PTQ, which would fill the elite field at 128.

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.
