ARLINGTON, Texas – Bowling continues to be the largest participatory sport in the United States with more than 67 million Americans bowling annually, and this Saturday, Aug. 10, is the perfect chance to join the crowd and bowl a few games in celebration of National Bowling Day as the industry is driving consumers to local centers through its national promotions.
On Aug. 10, bowling will take center stage when two lanes are constructed on the set of FOX & Friends in New York City. Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) President Randy Thompson, along with Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen and Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA) champion Rocio Restrepo will be on hand to provide information about National Bowling Day and offer the hosts of the show bowling tips. The newly introduced Go Bowling Pin Car also will be showcased on the FOX Plaza.
Starting Saturday, Aug. 10, the bowling industry is offering consumers a free game of bowling at participating bowling centers across the country. Consumers can visit GoBowling.com to download a coupon good for a free game of bowling any day between Aug. 10 and Aug. 31, 2019.
“Bowling is a fantastic way to spend time and have fun with your family and friends, and that’s the message we are going to be sharing with viewers across the country,” said John Harbuck, President of Strike Ten Entertainment, the marketing arm of the bowling industry. “We’re excited to have bowlers of all ages come out to celebrate National Bowling Day!”
National Bowling Day is traditionally recognized on the second Saturday of August. The industry utilizes National Bowling Day to promote the sport and encourage families and friends to spend time together on the lanes.
The celebration of National Bowling Day started last weekend with the Go Bowling at The Glen, the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen International sponsored by Go Bowling. National Bowling Day was heavily promoted through the Go Bowling social media channels during the race televised on NBCSN.
Strike Ten Entertainment has provided bowling centers with a variety of marketing tools to promote National Bowling Day to their customers and to others in their local markets through its Social Media Content Bank.
“Bowling centers nationwide serve as community hubs for birthday parties, charitable events, social events and competitive leagues,” Harbuck said. “Whether consumers are looking to get out of the summer heat, celebrate a special event or have one more fun night with the family before school starts, we are promoting National Bowling Day as the perfect opportunity for them to visit their local center.”
