Back to Hall of Fame
Berlin Myers has been active in all aspects of bowling since she was introduced to the sport. Her enthusiasm for the game is nonstop. She moved from Seattle, Washington to the Washington, D.C. area in 1961. At age 24, she joined her first league at Fair Lanes University.
Berlin joined the Women’s Professional Bowlers Association in 1977 and toured for the next nine years before retiring from the pro ranks in 1989. She made the WDCAWBA Top 10 ranking several times and was the association’s top bowler in the 1978-79 season.
Berlin was a league coordinator and certified instructor for 15 years. She also coordinated and instructed numerous Learn to Bowl adult/youth programs, and she organized many senior programs.
For the past 23 years, Berlin has been a bowling center manager. She also was the owner of Myers Pro Shop I at Fair Lanes University and Myers Pro Shop II at Fair Lanes Capital Plaza.
Some of Berlin’s accomplishments include:
- 1972 – First place, Invitational Tournament.
- 1973 – First place, Lebanon (Pa.) singles and doubles (with Mary Lizzio).
- 1980 – First place, Virginia State team.
- 1982 – Alternate, Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour in St. Louis.
- 1988 – Match play finalist, LPBT at Capital Plaza; first place, Syd Jones Tournament; second place, WDCAWBA City Tournament singles.
- 1995 – First place, Ladies Scratch Tournament at Shirley Park.
She recorded a perfect game at an LPBT event in St. Louis, and her high series of 748 included a 299 game.
Berlin always has looked out for and promoted bowling to our youth—the future of this sport—and she always is anxious to share her knowledge. When she walks into many centers, her former students always are pleased to see her, share experiences, and catch up on each other’s lives. If a youth or anyone else needed something in their sporting or personal life, she definitely would do everything in her power to make it happen.
Berlin Myers’s positive attitude, achievements, and successes in the sport that she loves have earned her an honored place in the WDCAWBA Hall of Fame.
