USBC hosts 2021 women’s championships in Reno Tahoe

April 30, 2021

The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA) welcomes the 2021 United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships to the National Bowling Stadium (NBS) from the present to July 4.

Bowlers from all 50 states and several foreign countries will head to The Biggest Little City in the World to compete in the 101st edition of the USBC Women’s Championships, which is presented by THE ROW Reno. The tournament features four average-based team divisions and six divisions for doubles, singles and all-events, which includes the player’s overall score for nine games, and competitors are looking to take home part of a prize fund expected to approach $2 million.

“We’re excited to be able to bring the Women’s Championships back to Reno and National Bowling Stadium, and we’re looking forward to adding a new group of champions to the tournament record book,” USBC Executive Director Chad Murphy said. “Our staff has closely worked with the RSCVA and NBS to ensure a clean and comfortable championship environment for our competitors, and we’re all ready to welcome the bowlers back to the lanes.”

The Women’s Championships will have its own, enhanced set of safety protocols and procedures over the course of the 73-day event. During the trip to the Women’s Championships, participants and guests spend an average of 3.5 days in the city, meaning they can explore the destination when not competing at the 78-lane NBS.

Reno Tahoe and the NBS share a long history with the Women’s Championships; the 2021 event will mark the tournament’s 12th visit to the destination and the ninth appearance at the newly remodeled facility. As a tournament-only venue with Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the NBS maintains the capability to implement COVID-19 protocols and procedures for the duration of the tournament.

“Reno Tahoe is excited to welcome the USBC Women’s Championships back to Reno and the National Bowling Stadium,” said RSCVA President and CEO Charles Harris. “We are proud to continue our great partnership with USBC while ensuring the highest safety standards for participants and their guests.”

The estimated economic impact of the 2021 Women’s Championships is $32.7 million.

The National Bowling Stadium underwent a $4.5 million renovation leading up to the 2020 USBC Open Championships, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The upgrades include the removal of stadium seating, an expanded settee area, new furnishings across the fourth floor and updated historic artifacts and portraits of hall-of-fame bowlers.
