During the 2022 Bowling Summit in January, it was “the elephant in the room.”

Bowlero Corp., which operates more than 300 bowling centers across North America, had not renewed its membership in the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America.

Midway through International Bowl Expo in late June, the elephant had left the building with the announcement that Bowlero was back in the BPAA fold.

“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.

The Professional Bowlers Association is a Bowlero property, and PBA Commissioner Tom Clark added: “So many of our valued bowling center partners and hosts are members of the BPAA. This… reinforces both Bowlero and the PBA’s commitment to the industry and growth of bowling.”

BPAA President Jim Decker welcomed the news of Bowlero’s return.

“An industry that stays together will grow together,” he said. “We are pleased to have Bowlero in membership and look forward to working together to continue to grow the sport of bowling.”
