United States Bowling Congress

A class action lawsuit has been filed against the association for allegedly conspiring to make the game easier to attract more casual bowlers. The lawsuit was filed in US District Court against the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) on behalf of all those owning a bowling center between 1980 and 2007. The suit claims USBC engaged in unfair competition, restraint of trade, negligence, breach of contract, and unjust enrichment.

The class action alleges oiling bowling lanes makes the sport easier and would lead to higher scores and therefore attract more participants, but it puts standard bowling centers at a disadvantage. The suit claims the USBC failed to maintain the integrity of the game by allowing playing surfaces to be artificially enhanced. The suit seeks restitution of wrongful profits, revenues, and benefits.
