Priority Entries

Priority entries open Monday, Nov. 14 and will close Monday, Jan. 30 at 11 p.m. CT. Priority will be given in the following order:

  • Top 50 2022 PBA Tour Point Leaders
  • PBA Tour Title Holders

PTQ entries open Monday, Nov. 21. 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 66. 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, 12 would advance from the PTQ, which would fill the elite field at 66.

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.
