Men and women participants must wear a shirt and casual slacks, trousers or jeans. Traditional collared shirts, mock-collared shirts and collarless bowling jerseys are all permitted. T-shirts will not be permitted.
Women may wear Capri pants provided the length is below the knees. Female bowlers also can wear skirts, culottes or skorts that extend beyond their fingers when their arms are extended down by their sides.
Examples of prohibited attire include, but are not limited to: T-shirts, tank tops, halter tops, bare midriffs, spaghetti strap tops, shorts, sweat pants, zubas and hats. All clothing must be neat, clean and in good condition.
It often has been said that looking your best helps instill a sense of pride that can help you compete at your highest level. Increasingly, USBC Open Championships bowlers are showing their pride by participating in the Pride Award program. The program recognizes teams that dress alike (no jeans) by issuing them a special lapel pin. Teams are encouraged to participate in the Pride Award program.
*The dress code will be enforced by designated tournament staff members. They will make judgment calls relative to dress code questions or concerns, while any questionable items or special circumstances will be addressed by the Manager on Duty.
