What's great about Main Event?

THE LOCATION!   The beautiful South Point Bowling Plaza, a separate 60 lane facility from the traditional bowling center, is an incredible, tournament-only facility designed for events just like this!   South Point's hotel and casino, on Las Vegas Blvd just a few miles from the south end of The Strip, is world class at all levels!  Plus, our room rates waive the dreaded 'resort fee', and there is even a shuttle you can schedule for airport pickup!

FLEXIBLE FORMAT!  Don't have the time or budget for a long stay in Vegas?  No problem!  Our qualifying rounds are December 27-29, so you can start as late as the 29th, and get the whole tournament in for a one night stay!  (Of course, we have lots of events to make a multi-day stay exciting and worthwhile!)  So, you still have holiday time with your families, and you can also stay over for Team USA Trials (rooms 12/31 at South Point in our room block are a steal for New Year's, and the rates all week are great also!)

THE PRIZE FUND!   All first place prizes are guaranteed regardless of entries, including the big $3,000 first place prize in Open Scratch Singles.  2017 saw over $35,000 awarded to bowlers of all ages and averages- we believe that Main Event is the best 'bang for your buck' you can find in youth bowling!

WARM UP SWEEPERS!   Optional sweeper tournaments December 26 are your only chance to bowl on the Main Event pattern prior to the start of competition 12/27.

4-PERSON OPTIONAL TEAM EVENT!  A great 'fun atmosphere' event to relieve the pressure of singles, it's also a chance for adults to show off their stuff-  you can have a maximum of two adult (age 22 and over) bowlers on your team!

PLUS: All the great fun, competition, and professionalism you've come to expect at the Main Event!  Click on the links above to find out more, spread the word, and start making plans for December!
