Reno to host USBC Open and Women’s Championships
December 15, 2012 by Mark
The United States Bowling Congress has chosen Reno to host the USBC Open and Women’s Championships in 2013 and 2014. It is the first time in bowling history that the same city will host the event two years in a row.
The state-of-the-art National Bowling Stadium in Reno will be the venue for the Open Championships. The Women’s Championships will take place in a specially-built arena which will be located in the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Bowling lanes are being installed in the arena and will remain there throughout the 2014 event. The world’s largest indoor mobile scoreboard will be placed in the convention center, as well, presenting the setting bowlers expect when competing in tournaments.
The Open Championship tournament has taken place in Reno in the past and has averaged over 80,000 participating bowlers. The Women’s Championships that have taken place in Reno in the past averaged over 60,000 bowlers.
USBC is handling the establishment of incentive programs, controlling lane conditions, and setting schedules and pricing structures. With the two major tournaments taking place in the same city, it allows for the staff to place more focus and concentration on the events to ensure the best experience for the bowlers.
Printing companies typically work closely with the event organizers for major tournaments in producing necessary marketing and directional materials. Banner printing is a standard project as banners are used throughout an event to mark locations and direct traffic and participants accordingly.
