Women's Bowling Championships Return This Week

Posted: Updated:

This week the United States Bowling Congress' Women's Championships will return to Reno.

To get ready for the event, the Reno-Sparks Convention Center has been transformed into a bowling facility complete with 44 lanes were and a state-of-the art scoreboard.

"This is a big time event in a big time arena and that's what we're trying to establish here, an arena type setting so the amateur bowler can take place and see their name in lights and compete on a big time championship level," says Brian Lewis, USBC Tournaments Managing Director.

Along with the women's championships, the open championships are going on at the National Bowling Stadium downtown through June.

Together they bring in almost 100,000 bowlers from all 50 states to northern Nevada generating more than $120 million for the local economy.
