Southeast PA USBC’s 2018 Open Championships will be held this season at Facenda Whitaker Lanes in East Norriton, PA. This 50 lane bowling center has hosted many tournaments in their history including the 60th PSBA State Championships in 1999 and our Open Championships back in 2015.
The prize ratio for the Team, Doubles & Singles events is 1 place paid for every 4 entries. The prize ratio for the All Events (optional) event is 1 place paid for every 6 entries.
The tournament for the 2017-2018 season will be held on April 14th, 15th, 21st & 22nd, 2018. Again for this season, we will be putting out a Kegel Challenge Series oil pattern for the bowlers to compete on while trying their best to win the championship. Last season’s tournament at Erie Lanes was bowled on Kegel’s Big Ben pattern. The lane pattern for this season’s Open Championships will be Kegel’s Stonehenge Lane Pattern. A link to the lane pattern graph is here.

WHO WILL BE THE SCRATCH AND HANDICAP CHAMPIONS FOR THE THE GREATER PHILADELPHIA REGION FOR 2018?!?
New this year, after feedback received from Adult tournament participants last season, we will be enforcing the 10-pin rule. (USBC Rule 319(a)2) Based on the success and popularity of the Southeast PA USBC Challenge Coin Discount & Side Pots, Women who are Challenge Coin holders (300 games / 700 series (women & youth) / 800 series bowled in Southeast PA USBC) will receive a $5 discount per entry per event for their first entry ($20 potential discount total) and the High Scratch All Events bowler and High Scratch Game bowlers will each earn $200.
The cost of the tournament will be $140 per team and $140 for Singles & Doubles (one pair of bowlers). All Events’ cost to enter is $10 per bowler and is optional. We at Southeast PA USBC strive to run our tournaments with the least amount of expense fees possible. The Open Championships is no different.
