The PWBA Kickoff Classic Series is the first Classic Series event on the 2021 PWBA Tour schedule. Information regarding host hotels and more will be available at a later date.

The three national tour stops during the Kickoff Classic Series will be:
Jan. 19-21, PWBA Bowlers Journal Classic
Jan. 22-23, PWBA ITRC Classic
Jan. 25-26, PWBA Hall of Fame Classic

The PWBA Regional event taking place during the Kickoff Classic Series will be held Jan. 24.

The field at the PWBA Kickoff Classic will be limited to 56 players. This event will include the top 48 players from the 2019 PWBA Tour points list, six spots from a pre-tournament qualifier on Jan. 18 and one exemption each from USBC and BPAA. The pre-tournament qualifier will be limited to 35 players.

The top 48 players from the 2019 points list have direct entry into the field. If one of the qualified entrants does not enter the event by the 21-day deadline, the entry will revert to the next athlete on the points list.

The third national event in the Kickoff Classic Series - the PWBA Hall of Fame Classic - will feature the top 24 players from the PWBA Bowlers Journal Classic and PWBA ITRC Classic. The combined qualifying scores (18 total games) will determine the 24 finalists for round-robin match play. Qualifying totals will not be carried into the PWBA Hall of Fame Classic.

PWBA Tour national champions, regardless of membership status at the time of their win, and players competing in the top 24 at the PWBA Hall of Fame Classic will not be eligible to compete at the PWBA Arlington Regional.
