The Professional Bowlers Association is coming back to Central Florida for a bowling tournament. This sporting event is being held at the Main Event Entertainment Center (MEEC) in Orlando on May 19 & 20, 2017. This is a huge tournament stop for Orlando. Get your tickets now.
This venue is located south of Orlando in the tourist area. It is an easy drive to get too. Check your GPS for the best travel route. The Main Event Entertainment Center is located at 9101 International Drive, Suite 1032, Orlando, FL 32819, on the Pointe Orlando property. There is plenty of parking in the Point Orlando parking garage. Parking is for a fee. This is based on the hourly or day rate. Sorry, no free parking available on this property.
The MEEC open in November 2015 has 18 high end bowling lanes with state of the art electronic scoring system, surround entertainment system that rocks, music videos on HD screens, black and ambient lighting. There is much more than just bowling. They have multi-level laser tag, full-service American Grill, bar, and much more.
The Orlando Sentinel just recently published an article about the PBA Tour coming back to town. To attend a live PBA Tour finals show in Orlando please call 407-352-3300. Spectator seating on the lanes start at $35 each ticket and go on up from there. There is general admission and VIP seats are available. Some general admission spectators will have bleacher to seating on which is on either the side of the lanes or in the back facing the lanes. The seating very limited and tickets are expected to sell-out fast for the finals. The Orlando Sentinel reported the last big tournament held in Florida since 2009 was the “King of Bowling” in Lake Wales.
The PBA Tour has just released more information about this tournament stop. There will be only a 42’type of oil pattern on the lanes for both the semifinals and finals. This tournament stop will have a round robin match-play bowling format.
The bowlers have been announced and are list at the PBA website. Who are the current top bowlers to watch for? Here is the list of top bowlers such as EJ Tackett, Anthony Simonsen, Jesper Svensson, Dom Barett, Pete Webber, Tommy Jones, Jason Belmonte, Franocis Lavoie, Walter Ray Williams Jr, and Amleto Monacelli. The first place winner will take home $30,000 along with a trophy. Just keep an eye out for one of these top bowlers to take home the PBA Tour Finals trophy. Who will win this trophy? This is up for grabs.
Every game will be taped which is a first time for the PBA. This event is tape-delayed and will air at a later date on CBS Sports on May 30, 2017 @ 9:30pm ET, June 6, 2017 @ 9:30pm ET, June 13, 2017 @ 9:30pm ET, June 20, 2017 @ 9:30pm ET, and June 27, 2017 @9:30pm.
