World Series of Bowling Has World Class Sweeper

The Professional Bowling Association (PBA) World Series of Bowling has announced a new side event which features the highest entry fee for any PBA-sanctioned tournament in history. The “All-in Action” sweeper will require a $5,000 buy-in from any player entering.

The All-in Action sweeper will be held Friday, Aug. 14 at 9 p.m. (Eastern) at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., and webcast live on Xtra Frame,’s online video service. Based on a field of 16 entrants at a $5,000 entry fee each, first place will be $40,000, with players who win two matches in the two-game match play format doubling their money. The purse will adjust based on number of entries, with all entry fee money going straight to the prize fund. All bowlers, including exempt Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour players, are eligible to compete in this sweeper. The U.S. Open oil pattern, which is a flat condition considered the most difficult on the PBA Tour, will be used.

Like all of the special side events at the inaugural PBA World Series of
Bowling (WSOB)
, the All-in Action sweeper is not a PBA Tour event. No PBA title or statistics from the event are official. Typical Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour event entry fees are $500. Typical side event and sweeper entry fees at the WSOB range from $80 to $250.
