LIUSBC HALL OF FAME

The greatest honor any bowler can receive is election to the LIUSBC Hall of Fame. The LIUSBC Hall of Fame includes some of the greatest bowlers of all time (performance category) and legends in the industry that made a difference (meritorious category.) There are 134 inductees in the LIUSBC Hall of Fame with 5 new members that will be inducted in 2020.

The Hall of Fame is dedicated to those bowling members from the Long Island USBC area who have demonstrated exemplary performance in aiding the progress of the game of American Ten-Pins at the Local, State, or National level. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize and perpetuate the names of those men and women who have achieved superior performance and/or who have contributed through meritorious service.

Meritorious Service: The great sport of bowling could not thrive with just the bowlers. There are countless individuals who work hard every day to ensure the integrity of the game is upheld.

Superior Performance: Bowlers are inducted in this category because their performance is worthy of a superior status based on their outstanding achievements in all phases of bowling; maintaining a high regard and respect for the game; and contributing extraordinary time and effort in support of the game.

The LIUSBC has a Hall of Fame committee evaluates the credentials of all candidates. At the annual LIUSBC meeting the Hall of Fame committee presents their recommendations on who should be inducted. The list of candidates is then voted on by the general membership that attends the annual meeting.

The LIUSBC is proud to present its current Hall of Fame members:
