-$2.7 Million Prize Fund Largest In WIBC Tournament History

02/28/2003 - Bowling Newsline
      GREENDALE, Wis. - The prize fund for the 2003 Women's International Bowling Congress Championship Tournament has reached an estimated $2.7 million - the largest in WIBC history.

      The 84th WIBC Championship Tournament final numbers show that 13,216 five-player teams (66,080 WIBC members) will compete in the 2003 event which runs March 20-July 9 at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev. The tournament will feature 33,480 sets of doubles, 66,960 singles entries and 62,547 all-events entries.

      The 2003 tournament will be the third held at the National Bowling Stadium. Reno's facility hosted the event in 1997 and 2000. This year's prize fund of $2.7 million breaks the previous record $2.2 million set at the 1997 tournament. The third largest prize fund was $2.1 million at the 2000 tournament.

      The Championship Tournament features the following divisions: Classic for bowlers with averages of 190 and above; Division 1 for averages of 170-189; Division 2 for averages of 150-169; and Division 3 for averages of 131-149. This year's tournament also will include a new test division, Division 4, for bowlers with averages of 130 and below. The goal of this division is to provide bowlers with lower averages the opportunity to compete with others of similar abilities.

      The WIBC Championship Tournament attracts bowlers from every U.S. state and Canada, as well as international participants from Australia, Bermuda, England, Japan and elsewhere. It is the largest participatory sporting event in the world for women.

      Upcoming WIBC tournament locations include Wichita, Kan., in 2004; Tulsa, Okla., in 2005; and then a return to Reno, Nev. in 2006.
