Richmond, VA – Bowlero Corp. (“Bowlero” or the “Company”), the world’s largest owner and operator of bowling centers, as well as the owner of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA), announced today they will rejoin the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA). By rejoining the BPAA, Bowlero Corp bowlers will regain access to key benefits that are designed to enhance their overall development, including access to tournaments and industry networking events.
“An industry that stays together will grow together,” said Jim Decker, President of the BPAA, “and we are pleased to have Bowlero in membership and looking forward to working together to continue to grow the sport of bowling.”
The BPAA is an organization that serves the specific, yet diverse interests of bowling center owners. Using their expertise, the BPAA has developed a list of membership services and privileges designed to give businesses the tools they need to be successful.
“As a company, we are excited to be working alongside the BPAA and all the great centers in the organization to strengthen the reach of the PBA Tour and support independent bowling centers,” said Michelle Terrell, Senior Director of Bowlero Corp League Development, PBA Regional and PBA50 Tours.
“So many of our valued bowling center partners and hosts are members of the BPAA,” said Tom Clark, PBA Commissioner. “This last week of announcements reinforces both Bowlero and the PBA’s commitment to the industry and growth of bowling.”
