There will be something special this year about both the men's and women's US Open, in fact it is unprecedented. Four of the leading entities of the bowling industry have got together to produce this year's U.S. Open. The event is to be hosted in Columbus, Ohio, from July 21 to July 27, it will give us all the wonderful opportunity to see the men's and women's competitions side-by-side.
For the first time ever competition will take place at three different venues. However, both the men's and women's champions will be crowned at Webb's Columbus Bowl. The event will be televised live by ESPN.
The creation and unification of this event is thanks to efforts put for the United States Bowling Congress (USBC), the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA), the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) and Strike Ten Entertainment (STE). These four organizations worked in collaboration to give us this wonderful event.
