The United States Bowling Congress (USBC) has been creating assets since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March to help support leagues, bowling centers, associations and members in order to return to bowling in a safe and responsible way. With the 2020-2021 league season underway, we wanted to highlight these resources to help everyone get back to bowling and feel safe on the lanes.
