The new Bowlers Journal Team Championship Series will build on the legacy of the timeless Bowlers Journal Championships, held in conjunction with the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships for more than seven decades, and add in the exhilaration of team bowling.  

Bowlers will have the chance to represent their hometowns, home centers and favorite leagues, as they look to determine the best teams in their region.

Each team at the Bowlers Journal Team Championship events will consist of five players, all of whom must have been members of the same local USBC association with an established average of 21 games or more during the two most recent league seasons.

Teams will compete over two days in a unique format that includes a combination of traditional team games, Baker match play and a three-team stepladder.

The top prize at each event, based on a full field of 48 teams, will be $10,000.
