PWBA Regionals

NOTE: All 2020 PWBA Regional events have been canceled due to workability concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PWBA Regional program is in place to give up-and-coming players the opportunity to get familiar with PWBA competition.

PWBA Regional events are single-day tournaments that include eight games of qualifying before the field is cut to the top four competitors for a stepladder final.

To be eligible to enter a PWBA Regional event, a female competitor must average at least 180, and the field size will be determined by the number of lanes available at each center.

PWBA Tour national champions and PWBA Elite qualifiers will not be eligible to compete in PWBA Regional events. PWBA Elite qualifiers include PWBA athletes in the top 24 in points at the end of the previous PWBA Tour season or those who have qualified for a spot in the PWBA Elite events during the current season.
