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 reduce the dreaded 'resort fee'!

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 can make the week as quick or as intensive as you wish!

THE PRIZE FUND!   All first place prizes are guaranteed regardless of entries, including the big $3,000 first place prize in Open Scratch Singles.  2021 again saw over $40,000 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 singles pattern prior to the start of competition 12/27.

5-PERSON OPTIONAL TEAM EVENT!  A great 'fun atmosphere' event to detox after 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!

On behalf of the JBT and its staff, thank you so much for attending the 2020 Main Event!  We hope you had a great time no matter what your results in the standings.  $27,958 was awarded to bowlers of all ages and skil levels.  We believe we ran a safe, fun event for these talented youth bowlers, and hope you feel the same.  We look forward to seeing you December 26-30, 2021 for the 2021 Las Vegas Main Event!
