Program History

he BPAA School for Bowling Center Management started in April of 2006 in Arlington, Texas when 26 students from bowling centers throughout the country came together to learn more about running their centers. Since then, the school has had more than 25 gatherings at locations throughout the US and helped over 500 managers and proprietors to run their centers more effectively and efficiently.

Today the school has expanded to offer a variety of courses taught by qualified, professional faculty that are working together to mold the future of bowling center managers.

The Dallas-Fort Worth Airport is approximately 15 miles from The International Bowling Campus. Since the DFW Airport is a major hub, it offers flights through most airlines and a variety of arrival and departure times and options. Considering its proximity to our facility and the availability of free shuttle service to the host hotel, we urge all students who will fly in for the class to designate the DFW Airport as their final destination.
