The RSCVA estimates that the scheduled upgrades to the
National Bowling Stadium, pursuant to the terms of the new contract, could
total $15 million. Immediate renovations that will be completed before the
start of the upcoming 2013 USBC Open Championships include new video boards
above all 78 lanes on the fourth floor of the National Bowling Stadium, as well
as the construction of the Showcase Lanes, a 10-lane bowling center on the
first floor which will be utilized for instruction and side-tournaments. Future
upgrades are scheduled for completion prior to the 2018 tournaments, including;
replacement of all 78-lanes on the fourth floor, expanded bowler squad rooms,
major renovations to the public space on the fourth floor and aesthetic
improvements to the exterior of the National Bowling Stadium.
The new contract has the potential to generate more than
one-million room nights, representing an estimated economic impact of more than
$750 million to the local community from 2019 through 2030.
Reno Tahoe USA is currently scheduled to host six USBC
Championship Tournaments through 2018. Both the USBC Open Championships and the
