How to Join a Bowling League
Bowling is a great pastime. It allows you to enjoy exercise, social interaction, and competition, and it can be done regardless of the weather outside. If you want to make bowling your hobby, joining a league is a great way to go!
Find a local bowling alley. Maybe you pass one on your way to work every morning. If you don’t, search the internet, or (if anyone does this anymore) use a phone book to find one. USBC (United States Bowling Congress) has a website that has a Find a Center search engine to help with this.
Go to the bowling alley.Check out the place. See if you like the atmosphere. Is there a snack and beverage bar that you like in there? Is there a pro shop where you can ask questions to learn more about the game/sport?
Talk to someone that works there.Ask what nights there are leagues on. If you’re competitive or more of a recreational bowler ask which nights those leagues are on. Be able to tell the employee what you typically average on the lanes (if you know), if you have your own ball/shoes, and what your expectations are of joining a league (i.e. a night out with friends, to win some money, to practice your technique and get better).
Sign up and commit to a league.When you pick a night and sign up, make sure you know what you’re committing to. Most leagues run 30 plus weeks from approximately August through April. Some are longer and some are shorter. When you sign up, don’t drop out unless you absolutely have to for an injury or family emergency. There’s nothing worse for the other bowlers to have someone leave the season early and have to bowl unopposed.
Bowl!Have fun, be competitive. Enjoy!
- Gain more knowledge about bowling through reading articles online and talking to people that bowl.
- Learn about bowling etiquette such as high fives vs. fist bumps and lane courtesy (waiting for others to bowl). There will typically be a league secretary or league president that can help explain these things but there’s also the internet.
