Due to Covid-19, OTBA Cancels Jack Erb Memorial Ontario Seniors Tournament

August 20, 2020


The Board of Directors of Ontario TBA have voted to cancel the Jack Erb Memorial Ontario Seniors Tournament that was to be held on Oct. 24 & 25, 2020 at Burlington Bowl. We do this to keep our bowlers, their families and the community safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. This was not an easy decision to make because this tournament is one of the best in Ontario and we have all come to know and love the bowers who attend each year. We will be back in October, 2021 so all of you seniors bowlers out there stay safe, stay home and stay healthy so that we can get together next year!




Due to Covid-19, OTBA Cancels Two Association Tournaments

March 31, 2020


The Ontario Tenpin Bowling Association (OTBA) is cancelling the following Association Tournaments due to COVID-19 safety concerns:


  • The Doug Imms Memorial Ontario Annual Youth Championship Tournament

  • The Ontario Provincial Championship Tournament


Both of these tournaments were to be held in May, 2020 and are being cancelled.  The OTBA made this difficult decision out of concern for the health and safety of our members, their families and local communities.


All those who have already paid entry fees will be contacted and a full refund will be provided.


Please, stay home if you can, wash your hands frequently and if you have any symptoms please call 1-866-797-0000 or see daily updates on Health Canada's website
