ARLINGTON, Texas - The Team USA program is accepting resumes from eligible senior bowlers and para bowlers interested in representing the United States at the 2021 International Bowling Federation World Championships in November.

Bowlers of all ages and skill levels will converge on the Dubai International Bowling Center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from Nov. 3-26 for the IBF Super World Championships (adult men and women), IBF Para Bowling World Championships and IBF Masters (formerly Senior) World Championships.

Participants for the Super World Championships (Nov. 6-15) will be chosen from the 2021 Team USA roster, but representatives for the inaugural Para Bowling World Championships (Nov. 12-16) and Masters World Championships (Nov. 18-26) will be selected by the National Selection Committee from the submitted applications, which will be accepted through Sept. 6.

The committee will select two men and two women to compete in the W1 category of the Para World Championships. Participants will compete for medals in singles, doubles, mixed team and most valuable (formerly all-events).

The W1 Para/Amputee Classification incorporates all wheelchair classifications. It includes leg amputees, cerebral palsy (with functional hands), and Les Autres athletes with mobility disfunction. All must compete from a wheelchair and follow the rules of play and modified rules established for this discipline.

The committee will select four men and four women, age 50 and older, to compete in the 50+ division of the Masters World Championships. Medals will be awarded for singles, doubles, team, mixed team and most valuable athlete/federation.

To be eligible for this opportunity with Senior Team USA, athletes must be, or turn, 50 years old during the 2021 calendar year.

The Masters World Championships also will include a 65+ category, but the United States will not field a team.

Those selected will receive a paid entry into the events, airfare, lodging and official uniforms.
