The Southern California Nikkei Bowling Association was organized to help increase the general interest in the game of bowling within the heritage of the Japanese culture and community — allowing its members to foster and encourage the spirit of good fellowship, keen competition, sportsmanship, and fair dealings in all its bowling activities.


Welcome new officers…
Lynn Matsubara – President
Allan Goya – Vice President

Jeri Ando – Treasurer
Jerry Armstrong – Sergeant-At-Arms

We wish outgoing President Eric Yokoyama the best on his new ventures in Las Vegas and also many thanks to Jane Taguchi for her years of service as our past Treasurer.

Tournament average rule change for 2017-18 Season:
All averages established on a Sport or Challenge condition must be adjusted utilizing the USBC Sport Average Adjustment Scale found on BOWL.com. The adjusted average must be used if it is the highest average.

It is with great sympathy to inform everyone that Larry Saika from the SFV Nisei league has unexpectedly passed away. More details to follow.
