Official Tournament Announcement concerning STORM Products Bowling Balls

After discussion concerning the recent announcement made by USBC dealing with specific Storm products used during National Tournament Events along with taking into account the specific wording stating –

These ball models remain USBC approved. Each USBC competition, whether tournament or league, has the option to adopt USBC’s national tournament rule prohibiting use of these balls or to continue to allow their use.”

therefore – the decision is up to our organization and taking into account what is best for our entire membership at this time – the Ohio State USBC will allow these stated bowling balls to be used during all Ohio State USBC certified tournaments for the remainder of this bowling season (2021-2022). Upon the completion of this bowling season – the Ohio State USBC will review this situation and make a decision at that time for the new bowling season (2022-2023).

However, there are two bowling balls that have been recently added to the USBC “Non-Approved” list that are completely banned from being used in any USBC certified event.

These banned bowling balls are:

1.) Storm Spectre

2.) Purple Hammer (made in the year 2016 & 2017)

Our organization will continue to monitor the ever changing environment and make adjustments as quickly as we can.
