59th Annual Kenosha.com Match Game Tournament
Now officially known as the Kenosha.com Match Game Bowling Tournament — and previously known as the Kenosha News Match Game Bowling Tournament — this year’s tournament will be the 59th annual edition and will be hosted by GRC in May. Per usual, the Kenosha.com Match Game Bowling Tournament will feature four divisions this year: Men’s, Women’s, Senior Men’s (age 50 and over), and Super Senior Men’s (age 62 and over).
In another nod to Kenosha’s bowling history and its tight-knit community, the Super Senior Men’s Division will now be known as the Dick Reynolds Memorial Super Senior Men’s Division in honor of Dick Reynolds, a longtime Kenosha bowling mainstay who’s a member of the Kenosha Bowling Association Hall of Fame and the Wisconsin State Bowling Hall of Fame. Reynolds, who worked at GRC for 25 yards, died on Jan. 25 at age 83.
The Match Game Tournament was once open to Kenosha County residents only, but in order to expand the field and gain more entries, several years back it was opened to everyone. However, entrants who don’t reside in Kenosha County must have bowled a minimum of 66 games in a Kenosha Bowling Association league to compete.
This year’s finals week schedule is as follows: Women’s Division and Dick Reynolds Memorial Super Senior Men’s Division on Sunday, May 14, and Wednesday, May 17; Senior Men’s Division on Monday, May 15, and Thursday, May 18; and Men’s Division on Tuesday, May 16, and Friday, May 19.
The closing date for tournament entry is May 7. Full tournament regulations, entry fees, and prizes are on the entry form, which is available at all three bowling centers and at Kenosha.com’s Match Game Tournament Central page.
