The South Point Hotel, Casino and Bowling Center in Las Vegas will host the PBA’s World Series of Bowling V Oct. 25-Nov. 3, the PBA announced today.

The fourth consecutive World Series hosted by South Point will again feature four “animal pattern” championships, the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour men’s and women’s Finals and the PBA World Championship.

New for WSOB V will be opening rounds of the second season of the PBA League, the PBA50 Tour Finals and Regional Players Invitational finals.  Also scheduled will be a pro-am program which will allow bowling fans the opportunity to compete with the pros.

“We’re looking forward to bringing the WSOB back to beautiful South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark.  “While the original vision for the WSOB was for it to move to different cities and that still is an option in the future, South Point has been an incredible partner and major contributing factor in making this event the premier showcase for professional bowling talent anywhere in the world.”

The 2012 PBA World Series of Bowling IV held last November attracted a capacity entry of 240 players from a record 17 countries to South Point. WSOB I was held at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., in 2009. South Point has hosted professional bowling's grandest extravaganza since.

World Series V qualifying and match play rounds will again be conducted in the South Point Bowling Center with the finals of each event held on specially constructed lanes in South Point’s Exhibition Hall complex.

Details regarding the WSOB V schedule, entry information, format, ticket availability and pro-am entry information will be available at a later date.
