ARLINGTON, Texas – The United States Bowls Congress (USBC) has canceled the 2020 Singles and Intercollegiate Team Championships due to COVID-19 public health concerns. The event was scheduled to take place on April 13-18 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Unfortunately, academic events do not have the flexibility to move back later in the year. ”
