Chris Via



Native of Springfield, OH where I have been bowling since the age of 1. Introduced to bowling at such a young age by coming from such a big bowling family. I bowled Saturday morning leagues with my older sister until the age of 12 when I decided to take a break from bowling and pursue traveling basketball.

At the age of 15, I was asked to fill a spot on a team and I fell in love with bowling all over again. A few years later I began traveling and bowling JTBA tournaments, expanding my game in hopes to receive a college scholarship. I attended Notre Dame College in Cleveland, OH where I bowled for 4 years, and coached for 1.

After receiving my degree in Accounting, I started chasing my dream of being on the PBA Tour. My dream came true when I joined the tour in June of 2017. I know an co-owner of TV Bowling Supply with PBA Member Michael Tang in Columbus, Ohio.
