Southeast PA USBC’s 2018 Inaugural Senior’s Championship will be held this season at Sproul Lanes in Springfield, PA. (Delaware County) Sproul Lanes is just off Exit 5 of I-476 and only about 20 minutes from City Avenue & Haverford Avenue and the Philadelphia International Airport. This is the first year the Association has been back at Sproul Lanes for a tournament in many years.
The prize ratio for the 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 inaugural tournament will be held on May 5th & 6th, 2018. We will be putting out a modified recreational house pattern to avoid bowlers from having a ‘home court’ advantage. The lane pattern graph is located here. Sproul Lanes has nice synthetic lanes and an updated scoring system. They recently invested in the bowling center with many other improvements for bowlers’ experiences.
Who will be the Handicap Champion this season for Senior bowlers in the Greater Philadelphia region?
After feedback received from Adult tournament participants last season, we will be enforcing the 10-pin rule. (USBC Rule 319(a)2)
The cost of the tournament will be $25 per bowler per event. All Events (6 games) will be optional and cost $10 per bowler. There will also be an optional scratch division for Singles, Doubles & All Events. The cost for the optional scratch Singles & Doubles is $25 per bowler per event. The cost for the optional scratch All Events is also $10 per bowler. The scratch event will be a virtual side tournament utilizing the scores bowled in the regular handicap portion of the tournament. That means there are no lineage or expense fees being charged for the optional scratch divisions, it all go towards the prize fund except for a small administrative fee ($1 per bowler per event). We at Southeast PA USBC strive to run our tournaments with the least amount of expense fees possible. Our Senior’s Championships is no different. Sproul Lanes and Green’s Pro Shop have graciously sponsored the tournament by providing two bowling balls each to be raffled at the four squads of the tournament. That is a total of 4 high performance bowling balls being raffled off that weekend. (one each squad) For more information about Green’s Pro Shop, call 610-690-0334. There will also be 50/50s to help defray the costs of running the tournament. We do not charge an excessive amount of administrative expense fees and dedicate most of the entry fees towards the prize fund.
