Latest USBC News Regarding COVID-19

USBC has updated their information regarding the re-opening of leagues and tournaments. The latest updates can be found on bowl.com under their COVID-19 Updates page.

Cleaning of bowling balls with ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL ONLY will be allowed until further notice. Also note the FAQ regarding the temporary waiver of rules 106a,106b, 320a and 320b regarding league and tournament play.

The rule regarding no balance holes is still expected to take effect on August 1, 2020. Despite the shutdown of the bowling industry caused by the coronavirus pandemic, USBC clearly feels there has been enough notice given to allow adequate time for players to have made adjustments to their equipment.

The USBC will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and can rescind the waiver of Rules 106a,106b, 320a and 320b and the allowance of isopropyl alcohol for cleaning at any time.
