Bowling.com was founded in 1999, we have built our business on hard work and great customer service. We have an absolute dedication to the sport of bowling, and take pride in providing the best bowling brands and products available. Bowling.com has continually given back to the sport of bowling through scholarships, raising awareness for troops, providing gifts for raffles, and by hosting the Youth Open Championships. Meant to encourage youth to continue bowling, this is also a chance for young bowlers to meet and make new friends from across the country.
At the 2018 Bowling.com Youth Open Championships, you will bowl nine games total – three games each of singles, doubles and four-player team. Your combined scores from those events will be your optional all-events score.
All scores are scratch, and doubles and singles events are bowled on the same day while team competition is on another day. You can request the specific squad dates and times when you want to compete, and you may enter the team event without bowling singles and doubles. However, if you choose to compete in singles, you must also bowl doubles - just as all doubles pairs also must bowl in the singles event. Teams and doubles pairs may be of the same gender or a mix of boys and girls.
