The 2022 PBA King of the Lanes will air in prime time on Fox Sports’ FS1 over five consecutive weeknights, June 6-10. The first three nights will feature the new PBA King of the Lanes: Royal Family Edition in which prominent PBA stars team with their talented children in the quest to become bowling’s royal family. The final two nights will showcase four contenders challenging to take down reigning King of the Lanes Jason Sterner.

Guppy and Kyle Troup, who own the most PBA Tour titles (eight apiece for a total of 16) among any living father-son combination, will be the inaugural Royal Family. Contenders who will challenge for familial superiority include Chris and Ryan Barnes, Wes and Jordan Malott, Tom and Brady Smallwood, Ronnie and Cayden Russell, Parker and Brandon Bohn, and Carolyn Dorin-Ballard and Alyssa Ballard. Aside from the Troups, the criteria for contending teams was professional bowlers with teenage kids, highlighting an incredible time for second- and third-generation bowlers.

Jason Sterner earned the King of the Lanes crown last season, first defeating Tim Mack in the contenders match and then taking the throne from Parker Bohn III. Sterner then successfully defended his position against Tom Daugherty, earning a return trip to the King of the Lanes in 2022.

The first challenge for Sterner will either come from PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke, whose stirring run at the USBC Masters, in which he finished second, may have been his final PBA Tour event as a competitor, or Carlos Granados, who earned his way into the King of the Lanes by winning the 2021 PBA Regional Players Invitational.

On the final telecast of the series, the contenders will be the two players who make it to the championship match of the Kia PBA Playoffs, which will be determined in the semifinals airing Sunday, May 8 at 1 p.m. ET on FOX Broadcast Channel.
