Six PBA Regional programs (East, South, Central, Midwest, Southwest and West/Northwest combined) will each conduct three events that will be designated as PBAW competition points events (see schedule below). Women will bowl with and against their male counterparts, but there will be specific prizes and benefits for women only, similar to the cashing system for “super seniors” who bowl in PBA50 tournaments. The tournaments will not diminish PBA Regional prize funds in any way, but at least one woman will cash for $250 in each tournament if a woman doesn’t cash in the regular prize list. Additional cash prizes will be paid based upon the number of women entered.
