The Mission

Founded in 2000, the Staten Island Bowling Hall of Fame is the premiere destination for all bowling in Staten Island. Throughout the years, the Staten Island Bowling Hall of Fame committee has supported local bowling across the island, including league play, tournaments, and youth competition.

On top of promoting the sport, the Staten Island Bowling Hall of Fame also showcases the year's top bowlers in a  variety of categories. Nominations are accepted all year round and announced ahead of our annual Induction Dinner, which typically takes place in November.

If you would like to nominate someone for consideration, please fill out this form.

Ben McNevich (Class of 2000)

Superior Performance

Every year, the SIBHoF aggregates all of the information  we have received about the year's nominated bowlers (including tournament scores, awards won, PBA membership, etc). A thorough round-table discussion will determine the bowlers that we select to enter the Hall of Fame that year.

Gloria Simonson (Class of 2000)

Meritorious Service

The great sport of bowling could not thrive with just the bowlers, There are countless individuals who work hard every day to ensure that the integrity of the game is upheld. Previously inducted individuals have included  the coaches of high school bowling squads, junior bowling leagues, and founders of leagues and tournaments.

Bob Hanel Jr. (Class of 2010)

Other Awards

There are many other honors at each year's Induction Dinner, including:

  • Bob Hanel Jr. Memorial 800 Award
  • Jackson Smith Youth 300 Award
