With the coronavirus pandemic worsening in the Houston area, the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles scheduled for July 30-Aug. 2 has been postponed.

The event, which draws all the biggest stars from the PBA and PWBA tours, was forced to postpone due to changing regulations and the unknown implications a month from now, organizer Donna Conners told FloBowling.

“We are just postponing for now,” Conners said. “We are looking to reschedule sometime in the fall.”

Cases of coronavirus in Texas, and the Houston metro area, have been surging with thousands of new cases per day.

Local officials in the Houston area, which is where host center Copperfield Bowl is located, have begun laying out restrictions that would make it impossible for the event to be conducted, Conners said.

In a Facebook post Monday morning, the event announce the postponement.

“Bowlers…we tried,” the post said. “We have done everything possible to move forward with the SABC Mixed Doubles Tournament, and now we are heartbroken (not even sure that covers it).”

The PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles will celebrate its 21st anniversary this year. Over that span, the event has raised more than $1 million in the fight against breast cancer.
