The 2015 National Championships will be held October 19-25 in Long Beach, California

The National Championships began in 1957 and are the premier bowls events that are exclusively for U.S. lawn bowlers and are run under the auspices of Bowls USA. The event consists of four distinct tournaments: Singles and Pairs for women and men.

To play in the Championships, competitors (individuals or teams) must win one of eight regional qualifiers (“Playdowns”) in the division of their home club. This requirement ensures that all divisions of the United States are represented.

Rules for the Playdowns and Championships are included in  the Laws of the Sport of Bowls. 

Competitors typically begin to arrive at the venue the Sunday or Monday before the event begins. An opening ceremony at the site on Tuesday afternoon October 20th will commence the Championships. Games start on Wednesday October 21, 2015. Each competition consists of a round robin of all participants. The seven matches in each tournament are held two-a-day, Wednesday through Friday, with the final match on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon is reserved for weather delays or any tie-breaking playoffs (a fairly common occurrence). Playoffs are required when the leaders are tied in game points (plus points do not break such ties).

The Championships conclude with a banquet to honor the winners and attendees.
