• Bowling at Crenshaw Lanes

Tournaments

Bowling and Billiards will be hosting two annual tournaments, the Bowling and Billiards Sport Bowling Classic (formerly, the Crenshaw Lanes Sport Classic) which will be renamed the Robert Crenshaw Memorial Classic, and the Marvin B. Overby Memorial Sport Tournament, as well as a collegiate event annually, known as the FSU Seminole Classic. This year, it is a two-tournament weekend, to be held February 4 and & 5, 2023, at Capital Lanes. 

 

Bowling and Billiards Sport Bowling Classic

Summer Sport Tournament

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 Professional Bowling Association (PBA) conducts all of its major championships on Sport Conditions at events such as the United States Bowling Congress (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.

Don’t worry about not having a sport bowling average because your highest non-sport average will be adjusted down (ex., if you have a non-sport average of 184 this will be adjusted down to 169 and you will receive handicap based on this lower average).

Marvin B. Overby Memorial Tournament

Marvin_Overby.png The original FSU bowling facility, Crenshaw Lanes opened in 1964 with Marvin B. Overby as its first mechanic. Overby served Crenshaw Lanes in various capacities including manager, coach, and director of the FSU collegiate bowling program for more than 40 years. Overby was an avid supporter of sport bowling and this tournament is a memorial to him.

Sport conditions are used at prestigious amateur events such as the inter-collegiate bowling championships, and by the International Federation of Bowling (IFB) 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).
