It was fabulous in 1999 and 2015 and it will surely be fabulous again in 2018. The QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup is going back to Las Vegas and back to the superb Sam’s Town center from November 5th to 11th.
Sam’s Town becomes the first center to host the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup three times. This will be the 54th edition of the most prestigious international bowling tournament.
“The facilities at Sam’s Town are ideal for us,” said the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup manager, Anne-Marie Board.
“The management and the staff at the 56-lane center are so helpful and so well trained to help run a tournament like this that it is a real pleasure to know we will be back with them. The size of the center means that play finishes quite early so all competitors, coaches and guests can take advantage of the other facilities or catch the shuttle bus to the Strip and enjoy the amazing night life.”
“A warm Las Vegas welcome is awaiting all our bowlers and guests this November,” said John Sou, Sam’s Town Vice President and General Manager. “We are excited to welcome back this great event.”
100 Best Things to do in Las Vegas
In 2015 Hong Kong won their first ever title when Wu Siu Hong beat long-time leader Francois Louw of South Africa.
In the women’s section, Clara Juliana Guerrero of Colombia became the fourth player to win back to back titles when she beat the USA’s Shannon Pluhowsky who herself had already won the title twice (2002 and 2004). There was only one 300 game in 2015 – from Keira Reay of England. Will we get more this year?
Pat Ciniello, Chairman of the Board for QubicaAMF said: “I wonder if anyone realized, way back in 1965 when the Bowling World Cup started, just how prestigious the event would become. QubicaAMF is proud to have organized this tournament for 54 years and we look forward to our commitment continuing well into the future.
“This year we are looking forward to welcoming the bowlers of the world to another amazing event. Viva Las Vegas!”
