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.

Product Registration
There have been some changes in product registration. A complete list of 2023 Product Registered companies can be found here.

Entry Deadline

Online entries for members and non-members close at midnight on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023.
