WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIPS BRACKETS - 2023
On-Site Brochure (learn more about each available product)
The USBC Women's Championships offers participants a wide variety of optional brackets. The entry fee is $5 or $10 for most options, so brackets are a great way to add more excitement to your tournament experience and possibly pick up additional prize money.
At the Women's Championships, there are several types of brackets available, including scratch, handicap, Senior (age 50 and older) and Super Senior (age 60 and older). Handicap for brackets is 90% of 220.
Each bracket will include eight randomly selected bowlers on your squad. You need to bowl a higher game than the bowler you are paired against to advance out of each round. If you win all three matches, you win your bracket.
Traditional brackets cost $5 each and will be available during team, doubles and singles. Scratch, handicap, Senior (age 50 and older) handicap and Super Senior (age 60 and older) handicap brackets will be offered. A traditional bracket will pay $25 for first place and $10 for second place.
Reverse Brackets work like traditional brackets, but instead of using your scores in order (Game 1, Game 2, Game 3), they are used in reverse order (Game 3, Game 2, Game 1). If you win all three matches, you win your bracket, which pays $25 for first place and $10 for second place.
Reverse Brackets cost $5 each and will be available during team, doubles and singles. Scratch, handicap, Senior (age 50 and older) handicap and Super Senior (age 60 and older) handicap brackets will be offered.
The Mulligan will give bowlers the chance to forget about their bad games and only use their highest game in each set of team, doubles and singles to make their best three-game series.
With that score posted, competitors will have to wait and see how their series holds up for the duration of the tournament. The Mulligan features a prize-fund-style payout with a cash ratio of 1:4.
The Mulligan costs $10 and will be offered in handicap, Senior (age 50 and older) handicap and Super Senior (age 60 and older) handicap divisions.
$2K SUPER BRACKET
The $2K Super Bracket will give bowlers the chance to win up to $2,000 for only a $10 investment.
After the final ball is rolled at the 2023 Women’s Championships, 512 bowlers will be matched up in each bracket and use their nine-game all-events scores in order (team, doubles, singles) to determine the winners.
If you win your first three matches and advance to Game 4, you’ll earn back your entry fee, and larger prizes will be awarded with each additional win. If you win all nine matches, you’ll take home to the top prize of $2,000.
Each $2K Super Bracket will cost $10 to enter and will be handicap.
The Mega Jackpot combines five jackpots and the 30-Clean Jackpot! The Mega Jackpot costs $25 and is available in team, doubles and singles.
Get eight or nine strikes in each jackpot or roll 29 or 30 clean frames to win. The strike jackpot frames are 1-5-9, 2-5-7, 3-6-10, 4-6-8 and 8-9-10. Entries are put in six equal pools and paid out at the end of the tournament.
Purchase the Mega Jackpot prior to bowling your team event to have a chance to win in all three events - team, doubles and singles.
At the end of the tournament, the $10 Mystery Doubles randomly selects pairs of entrants to make a doubles team. Each team's handicap total will determine the ranking and prize. Enter up to 10 times. Mystery Doubles pays one out of every four spots and has a last-place prize of $10.
This exciting product affords bowlers an opportunity to participate in regular eight-person brackets, randomized at the end of the tournament.
The cost for Play-the-Field Brackets is $5 per entry. First prize is $25, and second place pays $10.
TEAM USA QUALIFYING
Women's Championships bowlers are encouraged to use their nine-game all-events totals as qualifying scores to earn paid entries into the USBC Team USA Trials, an event that gives bowlers a chance to earn a spot on Team USA.
For a $35 entry fee, one out of every 10 entrants earns a paid Team USA Trials entry. In addition to a chance to represent the United States in international bowling competition through the optional qualifying program, USBC donates $1 from each all-events entry fee to support the Team USA program. Bowlers interested in a chance to qualify for the Team USA Trials can register when they sign up for brackets before team event.
