Lake Wales, FL - February 26, 2016: Kegel Founder, John Davis, has been inducted posthumously into the Polk County Sports Hall of Fame. Davis, along with his wife Linda and the late David Jennings, founded Kegel in 1981 and he dedicated his life to improving the game of bowling. Davis enters the Hall of Fame in the Contributor category for his efforts and commitment to the sport.
In 1995 Davis opened the first training facility for bowling, the Kegel Training Center, which up to today brings bowlers and coaches from around the world to the Lake Wales facility. Under his guidance, Kegel was the first independent lane maintenance company to take care of the lanes for the PBA Tour. Davis’ curiosity and innovative spirit were the driving forces behind the company he founded, the products they make, and the services they provide to their customers.
The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held June 14th at The Lakeland Center and will be part of the annual Polk County All Sports Awards banquet. For more about John Davis, click here.
