Membership in the Bahamas Bowling Federation (BBF) is automatic once you become a member of one of the local associations. Membership is obtained through the Grand Bahama USBC Bowling Association (GBBA) which is the only active association in the Bahamas at the moment. The cost of membership in the GBBA is $19.00 per year which covers membership in the local association, the BBF and the USBC.
In the coming months it is anticipated that the New Providence Bowling Association (NPBA) will be reinstated now that the new bowling facility in New Providence, Mario's Bowling & Entertainment Palace is completed and open for business. This will bring a tremendous increase in membership to the Federation as in the past the NPBA was the larger of the two Associations.
There are bowlers from the other islands who remain active
in bowling despite not having access to a bowling facility that are
also members of the Bahamas Bowling Federation (BBF). The cost of membership directly with the BBF is at a cost of $5.00 per year and is required to participate in BBF sponsored events.
The Bahamas Bowling Federation (BBF) currently has approximately 211 active members who are also members of the United States Bowling Congress (USBC).
