The National Bowling Association, Inc. (TNBA) is a major governing body for amateur bowling in the United States. This organization was founded in 1939, by African Americans, and opens its doors to all bowlers regardless of their ethnic background; for the enjoyment of ten pin competition on a National and Regional scale. TNBA’s membership stretches from coast-to-coast with a growing population of adult and youth bowlers residing in the Eastern, Western, Central and Southern regions of the United States. TNBA is ALIVE thanks to our members and sponsorships from our industry partners, USBC & HAMMER. Together, we will continue to offer National and Regional Tournaments; as well as programs designed to attract men, women and youth bowlers in an organized, yet exciting, social environment for bowling competition.

TNBA Arson Low Flare

Arson Low Flare is bringing it straight at tough tournament lane conditions with its own reaction shape—a shape never before seen in the Hammer family.

Born when nearly all existing differential was ripped from the Arson core, leaving a lean, low RG/low differential, the Low Flare is perfect for conditions so dry the pins beg for mercy

TNBA Chalk

The Chalk is a limited production ball and raises awareness of The National Bowling Association (TNBA). With every Chalk ball we sell, we make a financial contribution to the TNBA. This money is used to further our sport and fund their Junior Scholarship Program.

TNBA Rhythm

The Hammer TNBA Rhythm utilizes the popular and successful Arson Core and a Grand Theft Reactive coverstock that was used on the original Taboo. This combination creates a solid asymmetric cored ball that will react down the lane. A portion of the proceeds from every Rhythm ball sold will go to support the TNBA. Get in the groove with a Hammer TNBA Rhythm!
