Last week, the BPAA announced that brands of Ebonite & Columbia 300, Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, Jani-King and Storm Bowling Products have all signed on as presenting sponsors. Bowling’s U.S. Open tournament director John Losito told Bowl.com,
“This historic 2013 Bowling’s U.S. Open is the pinnacle event of professional bowling. Never before has there been so much excitement as evidenced by the stature of the iconic brands that have already signed on as presenting sponsors,”
“Just like the Open itself, each of these brands are in the upper echelon of their respective categories, and by signing on as sponsors, they continue to help elevate and enhance what is already a great sport.”
Competition will take place simultaneously, beginning Saturday, July 20, at three host centers – Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl, Columbus Western Bowl and Holiday Lanes.
