National Bowling Association Tournament

December 18, 2009

The National Bowling Association was formed in 1906, when Eastern cities broke away from the American Bowling Congress.  The first NBA Tournament was held the following year at Young’s Iron Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  For awhile the NBA rivaled the ABC as bowling’s national championship.  Poor management and internal disputes led to the end of the NBA Tournament after 1916.  The NBA itself was absorbed back into the ABC in 1921.
