The Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA), which will re-launch next summer, now is accepting applications from bowling centers interested in serving as a host for a PWBA tournament.
More than a decade after holding its last event, the PWBA Tour will re-launch in mid-summer of 2015 with a nine-event tour and a new logo.
The PWBA has a three-year funding commitment from the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) to support operations and provide guaranteed prize funds for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons.
There will be a specific set of requirements for a center to serve as a PWBA tournament host, including a minimum of 24 lanes (32 lanes is preferred), a scoring system that can provide real-time online scoring, and sufficient internet to handle a live stream broadcast. Centers also must be a BPAA member in good standing and USBC certified.
