Getting the word out about upcoming tournaments while managing all the data entry that comes with a paper and check based registration process can take up a lot of your board’s time. Plus, tournament days can get hectic with handling all the walk-ins and last-minute logistics. ACTIVE’s bowling software is built to help association managers and tournament committees with all of that, keeping things simple and organized, from registration to lane assignments to communicating with your bowlers. With easy technology to automate your busy work, you’ll be able to focus on the games.


Online Registration

Online Registration

Offer your bowlers the option to register and pay for your tournaments online, saving time for both of you. Our bowling tournament registration software will be a step up from your paper mail-in forms or reservation processes. With online tournament registration, your bowler will enter all of their registration and payment data via their computer, and the software will actually process the entire registration and send both of you confirmation of payment electronically.

Payment Collection

24/7 Payment Collection

Some of your bowlers (usually the ladies!) get all of their forms and payments submitted by the deadlines. But for those who don’t, you can offer them the convenience of online credit card payments. Your bowlers can sign up online and we’ll handle all of the details of processing their payments. Our system is completely secure, Payment Card Industry Level 1 compliant, and you’ll get all of your money without lifting a finger!

Account Management

Automated Lane Assignment

We all know that bowlers can be very particular about who they bowl with, which can be challenging to accommodate when you’re dealing with incomplete information on paper registration forms or walk-in registrations. With automated lane assignments, you have the ability to set your capacity and lane preferences and the system will output assignments. You can then easily share and post those assignments to get bowlers to where they need to be on tournament day.

Document and Waiver Tracking

Easy Capacity Management

With our bowling software, you can easily manage and control the number of bowlers signed up for your tournaments, so you know exactly how much availability you have and will be able to run your tournaments more smoothly.

Improved Check In

Improved Check-In

Want to make the day-of tournament experience easier on your tournament management staff? Cut down on long lines and avoid impatient bowlers with automated tools that speed up and smooth out the check-in process. No internet at the lanes? No problem. With easy report generation, you can export the pre-registration data in an organized document, making their check-ins quick and easy.

Email Communication

Participant Communication

Use built-in email tools within our bowling tournament software to get the word out about upcoming tournaments so you can grow your participation. You can also easily send tournament updates, registration incentives (like coupon codes and discounts), and automated registration confirmations.



We will never leave you hanging. As an ACTIVE customer, you get dedicated account management and technical support from a team of bowling fans with software expertise.


“More than 100,000 people participate in our events each year and thanks to ACTIVE, we can provide the ultimate membership experience to our bowlers – allowing them to focus on the game they love, not wasting time registering for game dates and times, hunting down scoresheets, or other administrative tasks.”
