Fans can practice using the Force at their favorite bowling centers with
exclusive balls as they compete in the upcoming Star Wars
Bowling League. Over 1,000 participating centers throughout the U.S and over
100 centers in the United Kingdom will host the Star Wars
Bowling League starting in August through the fall.
"The only requirement to join is to be a Star Wars fan and a desire
to have a lot of fun," Strike Ten/Leading Edge Promotions Executive
Vice-Present John Harbuck says. "Participating centers will be offering
various league formats including youth leagues, adult leagues and also family
leagues to ensure that every Star Wars fan can participate in a bowling
league that fits their lifestyle."
As an exclusive perk to joining the league, members can purchase exclusive
Strike Ten/Leading Edge Promotions bowling balls that feature scenes from all
six films of the Star Wars saga, including the epic duel on Mustafar
Anakin Skywalker and
Kenobi from Revenge of the Sith.
"Our seven-ball collection features a design from each of the six Star
Wars films episodes plus a seventh design that features the courageous
women of Star Wars --
and her daughter
Leia," Harbuck reveals. "We felt that featuring a design from each of the
six episodes would allow us to offer a unique collection plus feature the
popular characters from each of the films."
In addition to the balls, league members can also purchase a special
bowling ball bag featuring the Dark Lord himself --
Strike Ten/Leading Edge Promotions will also be offering a secondary
merchandise package for bowlers who may not want a bowling ball. This package
features a life-size Darth Vader standee, a Star Wars baseball cap and
a Star Wars Movie Poster collection featuring the original poster art
from all six Star War films. The movie posters are full-sized and come
in a handy collectors tube.
"What we hope is that participants in the Star Wars Strike Force
will come away from this experience having met a group of really nice people
who share a common interest in Star Wars, had a blast bowling with them
plus they get one of most unique and exclusive Star Wars collectibles
available," Harbuck says.
Of course, while fans participate in the league they're encouraged to
decide once and for all: who in the Star Wars galaxy happens to be the
"C-3PO is too
stiff, his limited mobility would result in too many gutterballs," Harbuck
might be a crowd favorite but proper grip and finger placement is a must and
he might have a problem with the three-hole fingertip grip.
Binks, forget about it. I'd have to go with the Master
himself -- Yoda."
