The United States Bowling Congress offers bowlers many resources on their website, from training videos, to news articles, to rules and regulations. The website, www.bowl.com, also offers a service that most bowlers are not aware of.

The site has a link that will allow you to search for any sanctioned bowler.

When you find the bowler you are looking for, and bring that bowler’s page up, it will show every honor score they have ever bowled, every league they have ever bowled, and their averages for every league they have ever bowled.

Have you ever gone to a tournament and forgot your sanction card? The website also has a way to look your page up and print off your sanction card, or merely pull it up on your smartphone and show it to the tournament director (I’ve had to use that one a few times.).

Another feature is the ability to look up bowling centers by zip code.

If you find yourself in a strange town and want to know where the nearest bowling center is, simply put in the zip code and there it is. The site also allows you to search for coaches near you as well as tournaments near you.
