Battle Of The GOATs Event Postponed Due To Coronavirus Concerns

The highly anticipated Battle of the GOATs event scheduled for May has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The matchup of three of the sport’s greatest players – Walter Ray Williams Jr., Pete Weber and Norm Duke – will be held at a date to be determined.

In a statement to FloBowling, event organizer Blanchard Granville said:

“The main reason for postponing the Battle of the GOATs is that the N.C. governor, Roy Cooper, put out an order to close, among several other businesses, all bowling centers from today until May 15 – with the possibility of change.

“I spoke with Billy De Cicco, proprietor of Sandhills Bowling Center, and he did not want to take a chance with keeping the date. Even if the governor changed the order by May 7, it may very well be that no spectators would be allowed.  Ticket sales were scheduled to start next week and a decision had to be made before printing them.”

The move comes after the first seven events of the PBA50 Tour have been postponed as well, currently pushing back the start of the season until June.
