Vegas Goes Bowling

The good times will soon roll in Las Vegas, where a deal has been struck to build a $30 million, 60-lane bowling facility.

The new alley at the South Point Hotel and Casino will host seven United States Bowling Congress championship events as part of a 12-year agreement including the women’s championship in 2016 and the open championships in 2017.

The last time Vegas hosted the open championships in 2009, the event reportedly generated $120 million for the city over 154 days.

Construction on the facility is slated to begin in May.

Reno previously hosted many of the USBC events that are scheduled to move to Vegas. The city is home to the 80-lane National Bowling Stadium, which holds the nickname as the “Taj Mahal of tenpins.”
