The brands of Ebonite International (Columbia 300, Ebonite, Hammer, Track) are dedicated to the future of our sport. One of the largest facets of support we offer is through our collegiate program sponsorships. Collegiate bowling is one of the largest and most important avenues to growth past youth bowling and we are committed to making a positive and meaningful impact in that area. Ebonite International has had a tradition of sponsoring collegiate programs for many years, but we have made it a point of emphasis to be more dedicated than ever to supporting the collegiate ranks.
“These student-athletes are incredibly dedicated and excited about the sport of bowling we all love, so what better way to support them through their education than by supporting their passion,” said Rob Gotchall, Marketing manager of Players, Promotions and Events. “It is one of our proudest commitments.”
Since the inception of NCAA Women’s Bowling in the 2003-2004 season, the brands of Ebonite International have seen more success at the National Championship level than any other company to date, with 9 NCAA, 7 USBC-ITC and 3 NAIA National Championships being won throwing our brands. The Ebonite International collegiate program has grown from 4 schools in 2014-15, to support 16 collegiate programs in 2015-16 and looks to continue its growth in the years ahead.
