New Jersey City University will host the championship, which will be held April 8-10 at Brunswick Zone Carolier Lanes in North Brunswick, N.J. Tickets can be purchased by calling 201-200-2444 prior to the championship.
Competition will begin with qualifying rounds in which each team bowls one five-person regular team game against each of the other seven teams for a total of seven games. Teams will be seeded for bracket play based on their win-loss record during the qualifying rounds.
Teams will then compete in best-of-seven-games Baker matches in a double-elimination tournament. A Baker match tied 3½ games to 3½ games after seven games will be decided using a shootout sudden-death roll-off.
During bracket play, the higher seed receives starting lane preference for the first and seventh games of the match and for a tiebreaker.
The University of Nebraska, Lincoln captured the 2009 NCAA National Collegiate Women's Bowling Championship at Super Bowl Lanes in Canton, Mich. The Huskers defeated the University of Central Missouri, 4-1, for their third bowling championship.
The 2010 championship finals will air live on ESPNU on Saturday, April 10, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern, and a tape delay broadcast of the finals will air on ESPN on Sunday, April 11 at 3 p.m. Eastern.
