National Bowling Week Rolls into a City Near You

Thousands of Centers Nationwide Celebrate National Bowling Week By Inviting the Public to Enjoy a Free Bowling Game in a Record-Breaking Challenge on September 5  

ARLINGTON, TX – August 25, 2009 – As part of National Bowling Week festivities, the bowling industry will attempt to make history when thousands of bowling centers across the nation take part in an effort to set a new world record for the most bowling games rolled in a single day.  In order to get the ball rolling, participating Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) member centers have invited the public to bowl their first game for free in an attempt to break the current record of 548,721 bowling games played in a single day (participating centers listed at www.gobowling.com).

National Bowling Week 2009 kicks off on August 29 with the record-breaking attempt to occur on National Bowling Day, September 5.  To launch the weeklong celebration, bowling centers across the United States will host special events that will include coaching clinics, bowling parties, quick and easy league sign-up and plenty of fun.  On September 5, all those who download a free game coupon at www.bowl.com can bowl a game for free and take part in the World Record breaking event. For their efforts, they will also receive a certificate to verify their participation.

“In the United States, bowling has seen an incredible resurgence in popularity with more than 68 million participating annually. Now recognized as the largest participation sport in the country it is also the fastest growing high school sport," said Jim Sturm, BPAA President and United States Bowling Congress Director. “We are excited to see thousands of centers, from coast-to-coast attempt to set a new world record. We invite bowlers of all levels and talents to bowl for free as we try to help make history!"

The World Record Event and National Bowling Week are sponsored by the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA), Strike Ten Entertainment (STE), the International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association (IBPSIA), the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) and the United States Bowling Congress (USBC).
