2015 Florida State Bowling Association Open Tournament: April 11-June 28

The Greater Gainesville Bowling Association, Florida State Bowling Association, and the Gainesville Sports Commission are proud to announce the 2015 Florida State Bowling Association Open Championship Tournament is coming to Gainesville on April 11-June 28, 2015. This 11 weekend tournament is open to all bowlers affiliated with a USBC sanctioned league and will be held at two Gainesville bowling centers—Splitz at Funworks and Alley Gatorz Bowling Center. As many as 5,000 bowlers will compete throughout the 11 weekends in individual, doubles and team categories. With each bowler typically bowling a minimum of 9 games, over 40,500 games are expected to be bowled during the tournament. Last year’s tournament, hosted in Orlando, FL, recorded 5,561 room nights.

Local businesses are encouraged to get involved by providing discounts and coupons to restaurants, shops and attractions for the bowlers and their families. With the participants staying in Gainesville for two days each of the 11 weekends, the impact will be felt in the community’s shops, restaurants, and attractions; so draw them to visit your entertainment spot! For more information on how to get involved by providing discounts and sponsorships, please call the Gainesville Sports Commission at 352.338.9300 or email Matt Crimmins at mcrimmins@gainesvillesportscommission.com.

To ensure a successful event, volunteers are needed at each bowling center each weekend throughout the tournament. The tournament cannot run efficiently without support staff aiding bowlers with scoring changes and lane assistance, check-in, and updating scoring brackets. For more information on how you can get involved via volunteering, please call the Gainesville Sports Commission at 352.338.9300 or email ggbatourney@gmail.com.
