CtD Inks 3 Year Deal with PBA

Posted by Ronald Hickland on

Creating the Difference has been a long time supporter of the PBA. Since 2015, CtD has helped pros and celebrities alike.

Last year, CtD made the leap to become limited product registered with the PBA. In doing so, that allowed some PBA Players to use Creating the Difference products like That Purple Stuff, TruCut Hand Applied Polish Powered by Turtle Wax and TruCut Sanding Pads.  Furthering the relationship, in November CtD signed 8 time PBA Tour Champion Ryan Ciminelli to a Professional Staff contract.  Click Here for that full story.


This means Ryan will not only be able to use the products, but will also help grow the Creating The Difference brand on the PBA Tour. Ryan said “I have won using the TruCut Sanding pads. Understanding surface is a key to success out here, and these pads and polish definitely give me an advantage." 

Moving forward, Creating the Difference has chosen to strengthen its relationship with the PBA by signing a 3 year deal for Full Product Registration.  This gives the ability to sign more players than the limited registration they had previously.  The deal begins in 2020 and will last through 2022.

  • Players can use Registered Product in all PBA Events
  • Registrant can offer awards, prizes and other incentives to players
  • Registrant can place Registrant logo on player jersey - up to 2 logos for accessories Registrants

"The PBA has offered tremendous upside to its sponsors with the relationship with Fox and now with Bowlero taking over.  Now that we are fully registered as an accessory company we have an opportunity to continue to grow our brand on the PBA platform. This is an exciting time for the bowlers and bowling in general. We look forward to working with the PBA and Bowlero as well as supporting the players." said CEO Ronald Hickland.
