HALL OF FAME
WESTCHESTER COUNTY USBC
HALL OF FAME & SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARDS
Before the Westchester Men’s and Women’s Bowling Associations merged in August 2006, the Men’s Association from 1975 through 2005, honored bowlers for either bowling achievement or meritorious service. The Women’s Association did not have such awards.
In August 2022, the Westchester County USBC created a merged hall of fame, inclusive of the men’s hall of fame members and those inducted after 2022.
The Westchester County USBC Hall of Fame & Special Recognition Award was created to recognize those in our bowling community who have displayed superior performance in the sport of American Tenpins and/or who have contributed through various services to the reputation and progress of bowling in the area served by the Westchester County USBC Association. Those individuals shall be named Hall of Fame Members.
Individuals shall be considered for recognition in the five (5) categories listed below. Any member of the Westchester County USBC Association may submit nominations for themselves or for others. All nominations must be completed on the APPROPRIATE APPLICATION, which defines the criteria that will be used to evaluate the nominee’s worthiness for that category.
Click on the links below or select the link from the website Hall of Fame menu to see the qualifications and application with submission requirements for each of the five (5) categories.
