WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita tourism officials predict the city will see a $14 million economic benefit from hosting a national women's bowling tournament six years from now.

City officials announced Wednesday the 2019 United States Bowling Congress women's tournament will be held at two local bowling alleys -- Northrock Lanes and Thunderbird Bowl.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/XH1Hi2 ) reports the event is expected to bring several thousand bowlers to the city during the tournament's run from April to June 2019.

The city hosted the Women's International Bowling Congress tournament in 2004, and a year later the WIBC became part of the USBC.

Several Wichita officials went to Arlington, Texas, last month to bid on the 2017 and 2019 tournaments. Baton Rouge, La., was awarded the 2017 event.
