Cowboys Stadium Now a Bowling Alley



    Cowboys Stadium will become America's biggest bowling Alley next year.

    The Bowling Proprietors' Association of America announced it will hold the U.S. Women's Open for bowling at Cowboys Stadium on June 30, 2011. The event will be held in conjunction with the 2011 International Bowl Expo.

     "This is a landmark announcement for bowling and for women's athletics – there is no more prestigious name in sports than the U.S. Open and no bigger venue than Cowboys Stadium.  This event exemplifies both the surging popularity of bowling among women and the heightened consumer demand to watch and attend bowling events," said BPAA Executive Director Steve Johnson.

    Earlier this year, the U.S. Bowling Congress, BPAA and the sport's hall of fame and museum moved to Arlington.

    Bowling's U.S. Women's Open will showcase the tournament lanes in the center of the Cowboys Stadium playing field, on each side of the 50-yard line.  Additionally, the Open will be broadcast live on the stadium's famed 60-yard high definition video board, ensuring that all patrons in attendance have the best seat in the house.
