What are the National Championships?

The National Championships, an annual tradition since 1957, is a premier bowls event of Bowls USA, crowning both men's and women's champions in singles and pairs.

While Bowls USA sponsors the event, it is hosted by one of the seven divisions and one or more of its member clubs.

Competitors in the National Championships must be United States citizens and members of an affiliated Bowls USA club, who won their divisional qualifier called the playdowns. This requirement ensures that all divisions of the United States are represented.
 In total, 48 qualifiers meet to compete for gold and silver medals.

The Bowls Development Fund provides partial sponsorships for the 48 competitors. We welcome your financial donations.
