If your average is 200 or higher you can bowl in PBA Regional Events. They cost $285 to enter being that you are not a member of the PBA.

You can also try the ABT but they are handicapped tournaments and really not worth it in my opinion. Paying $60 for tournament and then an additional $20 for the Progressive pot and only guaranteed 3 games to me is a joke. One bad game and you are pretty much done.

Ask around at the centers in your area. There maybe monthly tournaments like 6 gamers or 8 gamers. Or nine pin no tap tournys.
You can contact your local assoc. and/or USBC at 1800 514 2695. Since most tournaments are sanctioned, USBC would know about them. The no taps, not so much though.

Keep in mind that if you are sanctioned as a youth, you cannot bowl in adult tournaments unless they allow youth to participate and have you sign a prize fund waiver.
