ARLINGTON, Texas – The 2022 edition of the United States Bowling Congress Senior Championships will be taking place in August at Executive Strike and Spare in Louisville, Kentucky.
The USBC Senior Championships is a national event for bowlers who have qualified through their state’s or province’s senior tournament, and the 2022 event will be held Aug. 9-12.
Executive Strike and Spare originally was slated to host the 2020 Senior Championships, prior to its postponement to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 and 2021 Senior Championships were held in August 2021 at Sunset Station in Henderson, Nevada.
State and province association officials will have the opportunity to register their qualifiers beginning the week of Feb. 7, 2022. Travel information also will be available at this time for qualifying participants.
The Senior Championships features competitors in two divisions — Mixed and Women’s — in six age-based classifications — 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75 and older.
The qualifying rounds will include two three-game sets over two days. After six games, the top six scores in each division, including handicap, will advance to a medal round on the third day.
Pinfall will drop for the medal round, but bowlers will be awarded bonus pins based on their qualifying positions (50 bonus pins for first, 40 pins for second, etc.).
More than 400 competitors typically travel to the event year each from the United States and Canada in hopes of taking home a national title and part of a prize fund expected to approach $40,000.
