Sport Bowling is a program created by the American Bowling Congress and the Women’s International Bowling Congress. It consists of leagues and tournaments that are conducted on challenging lane conditions. The program, in its most basic form, is an opportunity for all bowlers to determine their true skills in such areas as accuracy, consistency, the ability to read lanes, and spare shooting. It is a new level of competition embraced by bowlers who are seeking a greater challenge.
