2021 Potlicker Tournament


At MLPLBA, a pot licker is a bowler who is hungry for a win, no matter how out of shape or practice they are. The Potlicker tournament is the first highly competitive tournament of the season. Participants determine their own pairs teams. The entry fee goes towards the cash prize (pot) which is awarded to the winners. The first place team receives 50% of the total pot. Teams earn points based on whether they win or lose and by how much each game. At the end of tournament play, the top-scoring team is declared the winner and will have their names engraved on the Potlicker trophy in the MLPLBA clubhouse.
