Columbia has hosted the Tennessee State Tournaments on 4 occasions in years past.
The first time was in the early 70's when Columbia Bowling Center (Parkway Lanes) hosted the ABC Men's Tournament. In 1993, Parkway Lanes and Enonite Galaxy Lanes combined to host the ABC State Championships. In 2000, the Tennessee State YABA (youth) held their annual Championships in the two centers. Ebonite's Galaxy Lanes and Kingpin hosted the 2005 Tennessee Women's State USBC Championships.
The 2013 Tennessee State USBC Championships were held here with the Singles and Doubles Events at Ebonite's Galaxy Lanes and the team event rolling at Dickson's Thunder Alley Lanes. Ebonite's Galaxy Lanes hosted the 2014 Tennessee Ladies' Tournament, also.
