ARLINGTON, Texas –, the online bowling superstore, has partnered with the Professional Women’s Bowling Association for the 2018 season and will be the title sponsor of a PWBA Tour stop this summer.

The PWBA Twin Cities Open will take place Aug. 9-11 at Cedarvale Lanes in Eagan, Minnesota. The stepladder finals of the event will be televised live on CBS Sports Network on Aug. 11 at 5 p.m. (Eastern).

“All of us at BowlerX are super excited to partner with the PWBA Tour and to add the BowlerX.comname to a PWBA Tour event,” said Lee Sandt, who opened BowlerX Pro Shop in 2006 and launched its online store in 2010. “The PWBA Tour not only gives the world’s best women bowlers a place to compete but provides an aspirational goal for young female bowlers. To be able to give back to the sport we love and support these athletes is extremely rewarding for myself and our staff.”

BowlerX, located at Town and Country Lanes in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, offers bowling balls, bags, shoes and accessories along with professional fitting and drilling services. The company also offers lessons for bowlers of all skill levels through its staff of United States Bowling Congress certified coaches.

As part of its sponsorship deal with the PWBA, BowlerX will receive a 30-second TV spot and signage on the BowlerX PWBA Twin Cities Open broadcast, plus a presence on all PWBA live stream broadcasts. The logo will be displayed at all standard PWBA Tour events.
