Bahamas to host 2012 WBT

17th August, Arlington, Texas: Bahamas will host a World Tenpin Bowling Association event for the first time in its history when the Bahamas International Bowling Classic 2012 joins the World Bowling Tour next year.

The inaugural event is scheduled to be conducted February 27 to March 4, 2012 at Mario's Bowling and Entertainment Palace, a new 50-lane bowling center in Nassau. It will mark the first time a World Bowling Tour event will be held in the American Zone outside of the United States.

"Hosting an international bowling tournament provides Bahamas with the opportunity to showcase the sport of bowling on the international arena," Mario's Bowling Marketing Manager Odette Carey said. "Attracting professional athletes, fans and media attention around the world brings excellent exposure for The Bahamas."

The Bahamian event is the first tournament to be confirmed for the 2012 World Bowling Tour. The Tour is currently in its inaugural year and boasts a schedule of eight events around the world.
