How to Put Together a Bowling Team

May 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

Bowling is an ancient game that has over the years experienced drastic changes, in both how it is played and even the players. In its wee days, it was usually viewed as a game for the old folks, the retirees who had so much time at their disposal but with nothing serious to do with. This misconception is no more as the game is now enjoyed by more youths than the grey haired members of the society.

Major cities across continents have bowling clubs where members can join and enjoy occasional bowling contests. Bowling parties are organized by friends where music, food and drinks flow freely. To wrap it all up, a barefoot bowling is the perfect icing to the cake. Companies have not been left behind. Many corporations organize events where they use bowling as one of the key activities. Charities haven't been left behind as they use the game in fundraising activities. In short, barefoot bowling has undergone a total 360 degrees cycle.

People who are passionate about the game enjoy it even better when they play as they socialize with others who share the same passion. If you have a good bowling alley in your locality, you should consider building a team of bowlers to get enjoy the game to the fullest. With teams, you can turn the game from a one-time off activity to a routine one, say a weekly ritual with a few like minded cohorts.

Finding a team may not be easy, but with determination and right searches, it is very possible. Start off your search by calling the local alleys and make enquiries about any clubs and leagues around. The difference between a league and a bowling club is that, leagues comprise of several teams that compete to win a trophy, cash or some other price. Clubs make up teams that compete at a more informal regular manner, say weekly. When looking for a team, decide whether you would like to join a bowling league or club.

Once you have determined whether you want to belong to a club or a league, look for three other interested parties. Bowling teams are made up 4 players, one of which is a captain. If members are reluctant to join you, make them understand what health benefits playing barefoot bowling offer. Bowlers can burn to the excess of 327 cal per hour. What of the great social experience and stress repression?

Once you have a team, look for a team name, which is all that is needed to make a bowling team. The bowling alleys in your area should have the gloves, shoes and balls. Come up with a team name that every team member will be proud of. With a team and name in place, request to join a club or league. You may be required to pay a fee. Once you are registered, start practicing with other local teams.

Just like other games, practice is of great essence in barefoot bowling. Compete against other teams, learn from each other and who knows, you may win a league. All you need is determination and practice.
