There are nearly 70 million bowlers in the United States... Are you reaching your share?

BNNThe Bowling News Network (BNN) is a group of bowling publications (mostly newspaper/tabloids) that distribute more than 80,000 combined copies of these publications whether through subscriptions or placing them in more than 870 bowling centers across the United States.

These publications have come together in order to provide national advertisers a network through which to advertise their products/services all across the United States to bowlers, league and casual alike at the local bowling center level.

 Strike Ten Entertainment (STE), the marketing arm for the bowling industry, is acting solely as 'administrator' and as a 'clearinghouse' for BNN ad submissions on behalf of the BNN member publications.

Note from USBC and Strike Ten Entertainment

USBC would like to share with its associations a joint letter from USBC and Strike Ten Entertainment in support of the Bowling News Network.

Dear Bowling Community Leaders

Here at the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, we have several organizations working toward a common goal of improving and growing bowling. We are proud to have Bowling News Network as part of our campus team helping to promote our great game.

The BNN is an alliance of tabloid bowling publications working together to publicize all aspects of bowling. Bowling papers and magazines have provided facts and features on bowlers, bowling centers, tournaments, and special events since bowling began. Today, with mainstream sports sections shrinking, the BNN publications are more important than ever.

BNN publications are a vital resource for bowling centers, pro shops, associations, manufacturers and bowlers at all levels.
We encourage everyone in the bowling industry to support BNN publications by providing news and advertising and including BNN as part of your media buy planning. As an industry we should always look to support our campus partners.

For more information about BNN, please visit the website, or call the BNN office at the International Bowling Campus - 817-385-8472. Media kits are now available.
