A group of 16 local bowlers were on hand for the 2021 National Women’s Bowling Tournament in Reno, Nevada, held earlier this month.
After missing the 2020 tournament, which was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, four teams from the Nags Head OBX Bowling Center were able to attend this year’s event. The competition began on April 23 and spans a 12-week schedule at the 32,000 square foot National Bowling Stadium in the heart of downtown Reno. Teams from across the United States take turns on the centre’s 78 state-of-the-art bowling alleys.
“It was a treat for one of our teams to be selected as Grand Marshal for Saturday’s team event and lead the teams in the stadium,” said Sherry Rollason.
According to Rollason, several local bowlers have been recognized. Kay Knowles received a crest and medallion for competing in 20 national tournaments while Valerie Reardon, Pam Nixon and Bonnie Gray received freshman tournament pins.
“We have several teams from our region participating each year,” continued Rollason. “Our scores were up to 200 but we had a lot of fun and are happy to be able to travel again.”
Tournament slices are updated as each team completes its turn. Official rankings and prizes will be announced after the Doubles and Singles Team Championships final on July 4th.
The 2022 US Congressional Women’s Bowling Championships are scheduled for April 24 through July 10, 2022 at the 84-lane Stardust Bowl in Addison, Illinois. Over 16,000 bowlers are expected to attend, making it the world’s largest participatory sporting event for women.
Rollason said several local bowlers have already made reservations for the 2022 championships.
