WHAT IS BEAT THE CHAMPS?


Chicago-land bowling's #1 charity event of the year! A total of $16,296.50 was generated for Charity from the 2017-18 Chicago Sun-Times/BPA “Beat the Champions” Contest. This brings our Beat the Champs total for all charitable causes to $2,872,914.93 since inception of the contest in 1961. All charity proceeds are awarded to local area charities which can be found in a full list below. This charity event is open to both sanctioned and unsanctioned league members that bowl within participating BTC centers. Bowlers who wish to enter will pay a $3 entry fee and take their own scratch series from that night plus a defined BTC handicap. Highest scoring participants from each center will be sent to the next round of play bringing them closer to the grand prize! Number of bowlers taken from each center may vary.
