UMSHoF Celebrity Bowling Tournament Set for Aug. 21

The UM Sports Hall of Fame is proud to announce its 2021 Celebrity Bowling Tournament will be held on Saturday, August 21st at “Satellite Bowling Sites” around the country.  That’s right…U can bowl at your local bowling alley and help support the UMSHoF.  It’s simple…pay for your team or sponsorship online…receive your shirts in the mail…get your friends together and bowl…and help the Hall of Fame while having FUN at your local bowling hall.

Local Miami area Canes fans can bowl with some of their favorite former Canes all-stars at a local alley. Some satellite sites might have a celebrity, too.  Hurricane greats who have attended past bowling tournaments include Burgess Owens, Chuck Foreman, Ray Bellamy, Rubin Carter, Reggie Wayne, Charles Johnson, Clinton Portis, Steve Edwards, Santana Moss, Albert Bentley, Bubba Franks, Brett Romberg, KC Jones, Eric Brown, Tracy Kerdyk, George Mira, Bennie Blades, Duke Johnson, Darrin Smith, Jaquan Johnson, and Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta.

“As we prepare for the 10th year of our annual celebrity bowling tournament, we’re excited to incorporate ‘satellite bowling’ into this year’s event,” said bowling tournament chairman Gerard Loisel. “This will be the first time that we’re able to hold the event on a Saturday and have bowlers in Broward and Palm Beach counties participate without having to drive to our Miami venue. In addition to having Hurricanes fans who live in South Florida participate, ‘satellite bowling’ will enable fans from around the country to bowl at the same time on the same day, while helping to support the UM Sports Hall of Fame.” 

Teams start at $350 for four bowlers, silver sponsorships are $500, gold sponsorships are $750, platinum sponsorships are $1000 and premium sponsor lanes are $1300.  For more information on being a sponsor or registering your bowling team, call 305-284-2775 or go to
