Strikers  is a 40 lane house in Sunrise, Florida, closer to the  headquarters hotel, the DoubleTree at Sawgrass Mills  It is in the process of continued remodeleing and you may see the difference in 2014 although most of the renovations are not "out front" yet.

It is our pleasure to work with Michael Ducat, owner, Tom  Nickol, General Manager,  Darryn Auerbach, Assistant GM, Vince Kuzmiki, owner of the Pro Shop at Strikers, as well as the Striker's staff, as we plan our 2014 tournament season.  Strikers is located at 8500 N.W. 44th Street, Sunrise, FL 33351

Although having only 40 lanes may mean double squads for the Tournament of The Americas, their hospitality and expertise at hosting a tournament will make up for any inconveniences there may be io the tournament schedule.  We look forward to making Strikers our home for years to come.

 Headquarters Hotel 2014
DoubleTree by Hilton

Our  headquarters hotel will again be the DoubleTree  at Sawgrass.  It will offer attendees a greatly  discounted room rate which will be in effect for a few days both before and after the tournament dates.   The hotel is across from the Sawgrass Discount Mall and offers opportunites for a range of shopping and dining.  The hotel is just a 10 minute ride from Strikers Lanes and our tournament buses will be available to all tournament registered participants and guest to go between the hotel and the lanes each day.  

Hotel reservations are "first come, first served" and the date for guaranteed rooms Closes July 15th. 
We can usually arrange for more rooms at the tournament discount cost, but only if  you contact the Tournament Office directly.  Do not contact the hotel for rooms.  They will not book rooms for the tournament at our special rate.  Contact  the Tournament Office for all reservations or changes in resrvations. 


Spectators are welcome and there is no entry charge for watching our great bowling competition. The competition starts at 9:30 am each day, Monday through Saturday, starting July 30, and will end each day at about 2:00 pm.  See our schedule for events.  Come to our Opening Ceremonies on Sunday, July 28 at 3:30 pm and help welcome the best bowlers of the countries of the American Zone,  lined up shoulder to shoulder across the house.

Need airport transportation on arrival?  

We will have more information on discount group  transportation from and to the Fort Lauderdale airport using Planet Shuttle, our regular bus company.  Daily transportation from our headquarters hotel and the lanes will be provided to our registered participants and guests.  We will also be working to get discounted transportation to areas of interest during your stay in Fort Lauderdale.
