Cincinnati Women’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame

The Cincinnati Women’s Hall of Fame proudly presents members who have excelled in the sport of bowling and those who have notably served to promote local bowling. Our Association is further honored by several members who have been inducted into the Ohio and National Halls of Fame.

Superior Performance has been defined as a minimum of 2 City Titles from the GCUSBC (and previous associations). One title must be other than a team title. The 2 City titles requirement will be waived with any of the following titles: City Masters/Queens; Indiana, Kentucky or Ohio USBC; USBC, Professional or Member of Team USA. All other accomplishments can be submitted to enhance the application. The applicant must be a member in good standing for a minimum of 15 years. Voting will be conducted by all members of the Hall of Fame. The applicant must receive at least 70% of the vote in order to be inducted.

Meritorious Service Award is presented to the individual with outstanding service to the USBC, ABC, and WIBC organizations over a minimum of 15 years.
