DFW Open

May 18th & 19th 

Lions Lanes
Ennis, Texas

We invite you to be a part of the annual Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Open Bowling Tournament. Teams from Texas and all across the country travel to Dallas for their chance to take home a piece of the $15,000 prize fund! The DFW Open is the only tournament in Texas to successfully bring together individual tournament proprietors in order to create an event and atmosphere that is unlike any other tournament around.

In addition to the over 300 expected bowlers, hundreds of guests will also enjoy beverages, food, raffles and chances to win money and prizes.

Entry fees are $300 per team or $75 per bowler

Side pot action and optional events available onsite.

The DFW Open was envisioned by Steven Lewis, the CEO of Twelve Strikez and owner of Amateur Bowlers Tour of Texas. His vision was to put Dallas/Ft. Worth on the map as THE area to visit for a unique bowling experience and a destination for multi-weekend tournaments.  He accomplished  this by inviting local tournament directors, bowling club coordinators, and various sponsors to bring their ideas to the table to do something that had not be done before.

The DFW Open tournament was designed to create an environment where all players, no matter the plateau of their game, could compete and WIN!  This event was put together with the bowler experience in mind and the feedback we received tells us we are headed in the right direction. Large events, such as the DFW Open hardly ever goes without a few bumps and bruises, but overall the bowlers voices said “Job Well Done”.

Whether you bowled, volunteered or supported your friends and family, we truly appreciate you being a part of the 2023 DFW Open. Congratulations to “Split Happens” on striking their way to DFW Open Team Champions and taking home $3,500!!

We look forward to seeing you this year where the sky is the limit and the winnings are only 75 feet in front of you!
