Tournament Notes

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.


W-9 Forms
IRS is requiring that we get new W-9 forms for all bowlers who earn winnings in PBA events.  If this is your first tournament of 2020 where you have cashed, you will be required to complete a W-9 form prior to receiving any prize money.  This requirement pertains to all participants, whether you are a member or not.
 
Product Registration
There have been some changes in product registration.  AMF 300 and Mongoose are no longer participating in product registration.  Neither their products will be allowed to be used in competition nor their logos will be allowed on jerseys.  For a complete list of 2020 Product Registered companies, go to
