The bowling tournament included 215 competitors aged between 14 and 60 years. 47 were women and the rest men. The list of participating states include Baja California, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Mexico City, Mexico State, Michoacan, Puebla and Yucatan, among others, as well as the two universities IPN, UNAM.
