LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas is getting a mega-bowling facility.

South Point Hotel and Casino announces that it has struck a 12-year deal with the United States Bowling Congress to host several annual events in a new $30 million bowling center.

The new facility will include more than 60 lanes. The hotel-casino expects to begin construction in May.

South Point will host seven championship events, including the USBC Women’s championship in 2016 and the USBC Open Championships in 2017.

The 2009 USBC Open Championships, held in Las Vegas, ran for 154 days and generated more than $120 million for the city.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority CEO Rossi Ralenkotter says the new center puts Sin City on track to become the premier destination for bowling events.
