How we roll….

Bowling has been around throughout history but it seems to have an association with the late 1950s.

This is probably due to its great popularity with teenagers during this era. Bowling is a fun and a simple recreational pastime!

Some people bowl professionally in sporting tournaments. Professional bowling tournaments were quite popular in the late 1970s. An interesting fact that I found was that in the 1970s, some professional bowlers earned twice as much as NRL players! So as much as it is was a fun pastime it was a lucrative sport for some people.

Earlier in the year, my family and I went to bowling for the night and we had loads of fun. We bowled for hours! There was retro music playing and a retro diner to go and eat at. Honestly, I had not bowled in years and I am obsessed with bowling again. I love it and so does my family. It is so much fun. We cannot wait to go back.

Bowling is easy to learn it is just bowling the ball down a lane towards ten pins positioned as a triangle. The object of the game is to knock all ten pins down in the first roll (known as a strike) or in the second strike (known as a spare) or as many pins as possible. The more pins that you knock down, earliest, the more points earned. You only get two balls each round. There are ten rounds per game 

 

When you are next able to, and thinking of something different to do, give bowling a go…….I am sure that you will fall in love with bowling, just like my family and I did.

Back Soon……

Ridiculously Retro Xx
