WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WESTCHESTER COUNTY USBC WEBSITE

Welcome Bowlers to the 20/21 Season

 The Covid-19 Pandemic continues to be a challenge for everyone, especially our bowling centers and bowling community.  The centers are doing everything they can to adhere to the requirement to stay open and allow leagues to continue play.  We, as bowlers, must also do our part. 


So let’s all be “Westchester Strong” and comply with the published guidelines both in and out of our bowling centers, so we can continue to bowl in a safe and responsible manner.

 

And be sure to visit bowl.com for the latest information about our sport and many, many other features.

The Westchester County Junior Bowling Committee is sad to announce the passing of our dear friend Anne Corradino.  Anne was one of the first trustees who helped establish our scholarship fund that still exists today, and which has raised over $200,000 for our junior bowlers from Westchester County.  She was also a long-time junior coach at the former Post Bowl in White Plains, NY.


She is survived by her children; sons Doug & Angelo, daughters, Deidre, Doranne, Donna, Debbie,

19 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren

 

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made in her name to the Westchester County Junior Bowling Scholarship Fund. Donations can be sent to:

Equipment Rule Changes starting Aug. 1


The rule eliminating balance holes in bowling balls takes effect Aug. 1, the start of the 2020-2021 bowling season. The rule states all holes in a bowling ball must be used on every delivery; any hole not used is considered a balance hole, making the ball illegal.  Bowlers may have up to five holes for gripping purposes, and all must be used on every delivery.

 

Bowlers who do not use their thumb no longer can have a thumb hole, as it now is considered a balance hole. No-thumb bowlers would need to mark a plus (+) sign using a scribe, engraver or tool, near the intended center of palm during delivery.

 

For balls over 10 pounds, allowable static weights will be three ounces of side, thumb or finger weight.

Additionally, we encourage you to visit the USBC & NYS USBC websites to keep informed of the COVID-19 effects on bowling.  In the meantime, let's hope that each and everyone stays safe and that we all will soon be back to playing our favorite sport.  Have a great summer!
