BOWLING'S U.S. WOMEN'S OPEN ON TRACK TO SHATTER ENTRY RECORD

ARLINGTON, Texas, June 8, 2011 - Excitement about the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open continues to grow as the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA) announced entries for the event are on track to be the highest of all-time. As of June 6, 2011, the event has more than 275 entries, breaking the previous record of 267 set in 2003.

 

The finals of the U.S. Women's Open will take place June 30, 2011 in Arlington, Texas, on the field of Cowboys Stadium, the first time that a women's major professional bowling event will be held at a traditional sporting venue. 

 

"The 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open will be an event that catches the attention of the world and I expect this will not be the only record we see broken," said BPAA Executive Director Steve Johnson. "The interest level in this tournament shows the bowling industry can deliver showcase events in the greatest sports venues in the nation. It also gives a terrific example to proprietors everywhere that tournament bowling is strong and a great way to get people committed to the sport."

 

Adding yet another level of excitement to the event, BPAA will award a $1 million cash prize to any competitor who rolls a perfect game of 300 in the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open Championship match - an unprecedented prize in the history of bowling. The bowling industry also will attempt to break the all-time attendance mark at a professional bowling event at the finals on June 30.

 

Presented by The Brands of Ebonite International, the Open Finals will feature the world's top five women bowlers who advance through the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open tournament, which will kick-off with qualifying rounds on June 24 at AMF Euless Lanes in Euless, Texas.  The Finals will be broadcast on ESPN2's "Best and the Brightest" on Saturday, July 2, 2011 at 6 PM ET.

 

The 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open is open to all female youth and adult bowlers in the United States and around the world, and will include competitors from Columbia, South Korea, Denmark, England, Finland and the Philippines.  For more information on the event, please visit www.bowlingsuswomensopen.com.
