Tournaments

14th annual Marvin B. Overby  Memorial Tournament

Friday, February 23 – Sunday, February 25, 2018

Please join us in one last chance to bowl at Crenshaw Lanes. Crenshaw Lanes opened in 1964 with Marvin Overby as its first mechanic. Marvin served Crenshaw Lanes in various capacities including manager for almost 40 years. On May 4, 2018, Crenshaw Lanes will close its doors for the final time, giving way to the new Oglesby Union renovation. A new bowling facility will take its place when it reopens in the fall of 2020. This tournament is a memorial to the late Marvin Overby, former coach and director of the FSU collegiate bowling program, who was an avid supporter of Sport Bowling.

Sport conditions are used at prestigious amateur events such as the Inter-Collegiate bowling championships, and by the International Federation of Bowling (FIQ) for various international competitions. Though the conditions will be challenging – this is a handicap tournament (based on 90% of 200) – so the tournament will be competitive for bowlers of all skill levels. Don’t worry if you don’t have a sport bowling average because your highest non-sport average will be adjusted down (ex., if you have a non-sport average of 180 this will be adjusted down to 166 and you will receive handicap based on this lower average).

2017 Crenshaw Sport Bowling Classic

Summer Sport Tournament

Due to parking challenges, we have opted to cancel this year’s Crenshaw Sport Bowling Classic. Please join us for our next tournament: the Marvin Overby Tournament — Feb 23rd – 25th.

You can experience the challenge of bowling on the same lane patterns that the FSU Bowling Team sees in intercollegiate competition. Competitions are held for both Youth and Adult, scratch and handicap.

The PBA conducts all of its major championships on Sport Conditions at events such as the USBC Masters, US Open, PBA World Championship and the list continues. These conditions are also used weekly in all sanctioned sport bowling leagues worldwide. Though the conditions will be challenging – this is a handicap tournament (based on 90% of 200) – so the tournament will be competitive for bowlers of all skill levels.
