2025 PWBA National Tour schedule announced

ARLINGTON, Texas – The relaunched Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour will be turning 10 years old in 2025 and visit locations all over the country throughout the 2025 PWBA Tour season.

Twelve events from May to August are on the schedule for 2025, all at centers with a successful track record of hosting the sport’s highest level of competition, including one that hasn’t hosted an event since the relaunch in 2015.

The tour season starts in Topeka, Kansas, with the PWBA Topeka Open at West Ridge Lanes from May 8-10. The PWBA is visiting the city for the first time since the 2015 season, which was won by Liz Kuhlkin of Schenectady, New York, over Danielle McEwan of Stony Point, New York, 241-203. 

After Topeka, the tour stops in Las Vegas for the season’s first major, as the United States Bowling Congress Queens will be at Suncoast Bowling Center in Las Vegas inside Suncoast Hotel and Casino from May 14-20.

Suncoast hosted the 2024 USBC Masters and will host its second major event in as many years with the Queens in 2025. 

The next stop will be Parma Heights, Ohio, for the PWBA Classic Series – Cleveland at Yorktown Lanes, where three titles will be up for grabs from May 27–June 2. 

Yorktown Lanes previously hosted PWBA stops in 2019, 2021 and 2023. In 2023, Jordan Richard of Tipton, Michigan, won the PWBA Bowlers Journal Cleveland Open for her third title of that season. That title helped her secure 2023 PWBA Player of the Year honors. 

Once the Classic Series is over, the fourth stop will be in Waterloo, Iowa, at Cadillac Xtreme Bowling Center, which will host its second stop in three seasons courtesy of the PWBA Waterloo Open (June 5-7). Cadillac XBC played host to PWBA Tour Championship week in 2023, culminating in Colombia’s Maria José Rodriguez taking home the PWBA Tour Championship trophy.

The 2025 season’s second major will take place June 10-17 as the U.S. Women’s Open will be in Lincoln, Nebraska, at Sun Valley Lanes. Sun Valley Lanes last hosted a PWBA event in 2021 with the PWBA Lincoln Open, which was won by Liz Johnson of Niagara Falls, New York, who shot just the fifth championship round 300 game in PWBA history on her way to victory.  

The center is familiar with hosting major and PWBA events, as the 2020 U.S. Open was held at Sun Valley Lanes, while the PWBA has visited the center five times since the relaunch (2015-2017, 2019 and 2021).

The tour will take a small break before heading to Green Bay, Wisconsin, for the PWBA Green Bay Open from July 9-13 at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley. This will mark back-to-back years for the center to host the tour as it also is the site of the 2024 USBC Queens.  

July 24-27 will see the annual Professional Bowlers Association/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles in Houston at Copperfield Bowl. It will be the 25th anniversary of the event and will count as a title for the respective tours.

The 2025 PWBA Tour season will close in Rochester, New York, at ABC Gates Bowl with PWBA Tour Championship week. ABC Gates Bowl previously held the 2023 U.S. Women’s Open, which Bryanna Coté of Tucson, Arizona, won for her first career major.

PWBA Tour Championship Week will take place Aug. 5-12 and feature three tournaments in a seven-day span similar to the Classic Series. The first two will be stand-alone events, and the third will be the PWBA Tour Championship, the final major of the 2025 season.

To qualify for the Tour Championship, a player must be in good standing with the PWBA and have won a National Tour title during the 2025 season and the remainder of the field will be filled from the 2025 PWBA season points list through the most recent tournament preceding the Tour Championship.

BowlTV will once again provide exclusive, live coverage of all qualifying and match play rounds for each PWBA event in 2025. BowlTV and national TV coverage of the finals of each 2025 event will be announced at a later date.
