The aim of the PBA is to promote and develop Professional Bowls worldwide and in doing so, foster, safeguard and encourage the game of bowls at all levels.
The Professional Bowls Association (PBA) was formed in 1997 by bowlers worldwide including Bowls USA Hall of Fame member Frank Souza. The PBA has branches in US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Israel, South Africa and the UK.

Membership in the PBA is open to anyone. Please join the PBA USA and enter the US Qualifiers to earn a spot in a WBT event. Next year the PBA USA will be holding Regional Qualifiers in the US and the US Qualifier Finals in September, 2024.
The US branch of the PBA is currently run by a committee of 3. Neil Furman, Scottie Marzonie and Phil Dunn are working together to make sure the PBA USA maintains it's status as one of the participating International branches of the PBA. The Committee is focused on increasing memberships, marketing the organization, providing professionally run qualifying events and keeping up communication with the World Bowls Tour. We look forward to a bright future as we plan for the upcoming years' Qualifiers!
