National Basketball Association star and bowling enthusiast Chris Paul, will host an all-star lineup of athletes, entertainers, and Professional Bowlers Association stars to his 10th anniversary CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational, presented by Go Bowling! The annual event will be televised on FOX on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2 p.m. EST, at Bowlero at The Woodlands.
The Super Bowl Sunday special, benefiting the Chris Paul Family Foundation, will feature well-known athletes including returning competitors Terrell Owens, recently inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and reigning American League MVP and World Series champion Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox, along with a guest appearance by Houston Texans superstar defensive end J.J. Watt. Also participating will be Paul’s Houston Rockets teammate P.J. Tucker, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver William Jackson III, and NASCAR champion Aric Almirola, driver of the No. 10 Go Bowling! Ford. Entertainers in the field will include Big Brother Season 20-star Tyler Crispen, model and Big Brother contestant Angela Rummans, and Grammy-nominated rapper/artist Bun B.
“This is totally different than any bowling I do during the summer or with my friends and teammates,” Paul said of his annual event. “The pressure is different, there are a lot of people here, the lights are bright, but I’ll make sure I do enough to win.”
Regarding the 10th anniversary of the event, and its network debut on FOX, Paul added, “It’s crazy. I’m excited. It’s amazing that it’s been 10 years. I’m so grateful to the PBA and the bowlers, I can’t say thank you enough.”
The CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational will air on FOX for the first time, and for the first time, PBA’s online streaming partner, FloBowling, will make the show available to its international subscribers.
