PBA has established a waiting list for PBA members who would still like to enter the Detroit Winter Swing.

Entries are sold out for the PBA Carmen Salvino, Mark Roth and Don Carter Classics, and Earl Anthony PBA Players Championship which are part of the Winter Swing that will be held at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich. Jan. 19-27.

PBA and Thunderbowl Lanes are also accepting entries for the event’s Pro Tour Qualifier that will now advance 10 players to the regular field. Previously eight spots were earmarked to advance from the PTQ, which will be conducted Jan. 19, but Thunderbowl Lanes has transferred its host center spots to the PTQ.

The Carmen Salvino, Mark Roth and Don Carter Classics will each pay a $15,000 first prize and a 32-place prize list ($700 last-to-cash). The Earl Anthony Players Championship will pay a $25,000 first prize and a 42-place prize list ($1,000 last-to-cash).

Making up the rest of the 125-player Winter Swing field will be members of the eight PBA League teams (48 players including each team’s supplemental draft pick), 67 full member spots and 10 spots for non-member Pro-Tournament Qualifier (PTQ) entrants.

Waiting list entries will be accepted only for all four events (players may not enter events individually) with members placed on the list in the order in which they are received. All full PBA members on the waiting list will be allowed to enter the non-member PTQ to compete for one of the 10 available spots. Entry fee for the PTQ — which will not have a prize fund – is $200 with no additional fee required for players who advance to the regular tournament field. Any non-members from the PTQ who advance to the regular field will not be required to become PBA members

Players wishing to be placed on the waiting list or enter the PTQ for the Detroit Winter Swing may either download an entry form or enter online here.
