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.

Our top concern is the health and safety of our members and families. We unfortunately have cancelled all of our 2020 and 2021 events due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We thank you for your commitment to our organization, value your membership, and look forward to seeing everyone out on the lanes next year. Be safe and take care.  —SCNBA

Tournament average rule change for 2017-18 Season and moving forward: 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.
