US Bowling Congress Open Championships to Stay in Reno a Week Longer
13 Feb, 2020
As the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships prepares for its return to Reno, Nevada, in 2020, competitors have shown their passion for The Biggest Little City in the World by filling nearly 92 percent of the originally scheduled competition days.
More than 9,400 teams already have registered for the event, and with nearly all squads sold out from May through the end of the tournament, USBC has added another week of squads in July.
The 2020 USBC Open Championships has been extended to July 12 (last team date July 11), making room for teams still interested in competing and seeing what the newly renovated National Bowling Stadium has to offer.
The event is returning to Reno for the first time since 2016 and was scheduled to run for 108 consecutive days from March 21 until July 6. The extra week will allow an additional 600 teams to experience the world's largest participatory sporting event and iconic 78-lane NBS.
The entry deadline for the event has been extended until May 15 to allow bowlers and captains to form teams and take advantage of added inventory. Captains can enter and pay online at BOWL.com/OpenChamp, or call the tournament office at 888-910-2695.
