Tulane to host NCAA Women’s Bowling Regional in 2021
NEW ORLEANS – The NCAA has awarded the National Collegiate Women’s Bowling Championship Regional to the city of New Orleans for the 2020-21 season.
Tulane will host the regional at Colonial Lanes in Harahan, Louisiana. This is the first time the city of New Orleans and Tulane have hosted the National Collegiate Women’s Bowling Championship Regionals.
This is the third time for this specific NCAA championship bid process, which created the largest host site announcement ever, spanning 86 championships across a four-year cycle. Previously, selection announcements varied by sport. This process now gives the NCAA and host sites more time to plan each championship experience.
Bidding for 86 of 90 NCAA championships began in August 2019 and more than 3,000 bid applications were ultimately submitted. Each sport committee, per division, selected the host sites it believed would provide the ultimate experience for the respective student-athletes, resulting in more than 450 total championship event sites being awarded. More than 54,000 student-athletes compete in NCAA championships each year. The four championships not included in the process due to preexisting site arrangements are: Division I baseball, Division I football, Division I softball and Division III women’s ice hockey.
