Kegel and the World Tenpin Bowling Association (a.k.a. World Bowling) have extended their agreement for Kegel to provide lane maintenance for all WTBA World Championship tournaments through 2015.
Since 1995, the WTBA World Championship tournaments have been using Kegel equipment, chemicals and technical staff during their events. Kegel President Chris Chartrand and WTBA President Kevin Dornberger recently decided to continue this partnership and extend their contract for an additional year.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our relationship with the WTBA as the official lane maintenance provider for their events,” Chartrand said. “It’s a natural partnership because Kegel is so deeply entrenched in the sport of bowling, and the WTBA events are the pinnacle for the sport of bowling worldwide.“
Kegel will provide lane maintenance supplies and personnel for two WTBA World Championship events in 2015. The next WTBA World Championship event will be the World Senior Championships, scheduled for August 23-30 at Sam’s Town in Las Vegas. After that, the WTBA Women’s World Championships will be held December 4-13 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
“Kegel’s lane maintenance equipment and extensive experience make them the perfect choice for our events,” Dornberger said. “We can be confident that our lanes are taken care of to the highest level of fairness and integrity.”
