2016 USBC Open Championships
March 5 - July 10 (last day of team competition)
National Bowling Stadium

The USBC Open Championships is widely recognized as the largest participatory sporting event in the world. Consisting of team, doubles, singles and optional all-events competition, the Open Championships is held in an arena or convention-center setting each year.

All you have to do to participate is become a USBC member. If you want to experience competition in a stadium-like atmosphere, while combining your bowling experience with a vacation to the tournament city, this is the event for you.

There are two divisions based on skill level: The Regular Division, for those who average higher than 180, and the Classified Division, for bowlers who average 180 or below.
