The United States Bowling Congress will continue to bring top-tier competition to Las Vegas through 2039 after extending its agreement with Las Vegas Events and the South Point Hotel and Casino.

USBC will conduct its Open and Women’s Championships at the South Point Bowling Plaza, a 60-lane tournament venue located on the South Point property, as part of the current three-year cycle.

The Open Championships now will be held at the Bowling Plaza in 2024, 2027, 2030, 2033, 2036 and 2039. The Women’s Championships will be conducted at the facility in 2023, 2026, 2029, 2032, 2035 and 2038. The 2023 Women’s Championships begins on April 23.

The agreement also will bring 16 of USBC’s short-duration events to other properties across the Las Vegas Valley between 2023 and 2039. In addition to the competition, the extension will see the USBC Convention and Annual Meeting held in various Clark County venues four times.

“Las Vegas takes great pride in its rich bowling history, and Las Vegas Events is proud to continue our partnership with USBC through 2039,” LVE President Tim Keener said. “From the first Women’s Championships held in Las Vegas in 1973 and 1983 to the Open Championships in 1986 and then again in 2009, through the multi-tiered agreement that brought top-tier competition since 2015, Las Vegas has become a premier destination for the USBC.”

The South Point Bowling Plaza opened its doors to USBC competition at the 2016 Women’s Championships. The facility has hosted the Open Championships four times since 2017.

“When we opened the Tournament Bowling Plaza in 2016, we knew it was going to be an amazing addition to the sports landscape in Las Vegas,” South Point General Manager Ryan Growney said. “However, these events have exceeded all of our expectations, and for that reason, we are excited to continue the partnership with the USBC and Las Vegas Events to host these incredible tournaments until 2039.”
