Professional Bowling Association Pegs Palm Beaches as Perfect Place for Return

The Professional Bowling Association (PBA) returned to The Palm Beaches with two live events in June and have planned two more star-studded events to take place in July. The PBA Strike Derby held at Bowlero Jupiter on June 6 became the third made-for-television sporting event to be held in Palm Beach County following the PGA TOUR’s TaylorMade Driving Relief event in Juno Beach on May 17 and the UTR Pro Match Series’ 2020 (Re) Open Tour event in West Palm Beach on May 22.

The PBA Strike Derby featured some of the world’s best players attempting to score as many strikes as possible in a timed competition and the PBA Summer Clash on June 13 showcased exciting competition as players took part in a high-stakes, one-ball elimination tournament. The next event slated for Bowlero Jupiter will be the PBA Tour Finals which will take place July 18 and 19. The last planned event, PBA King of the Lanes, will bring bowling royalty together in a six-episode live series aired on prime time from July 20-22. The full schedule for the King of the Lanes series can be found below.

All the competitions will be held at Bowlero Jupiter in Florida, without fans in attendance and an abundance of caution towards the safety of the players, officials and TV production crew.

“We are so excited to be one of the first properties bringing live sports back to broadcast television,” said PBA CEO Colie Edison ahead of the organization’s first June event. “This dynamic series of events will showcase the immense talent of our elite bowlers to a wide audience and we look forward to welcoming new fans to the Professional Bowlers Association.”
