Did you know that league bowling is over a hundred years old? Back in the late 19th century, bowling was gaining popularity throughout the United States rapidly. But there were as many different rules and versions of the game as there were towns playing. That’s why some dedicated bowlers came together in 1895 to create the American Bowling Congress. With this new organization of the game comes standardization of rules and a broader source of competition. Not long after, America saw the first bowling leagues pop up across the country!
Another 20 years past by and the Women’s International Bowling Congress was formed, creating a space for women to join in and even create mixed leagues.
The best part about league bowling is that it’ll keep you and your buddies busy straight through the winter months and always gives you something to look forward to.
