Bowling for Fun

Bowling is also so great because it's a place where you can be social, meet new people, and make new friends. I can't tell you how many amazing people I have met in my life and stayed in contact with because of a Sacramento bowling alley. There is just something about bonding with another bowler that just makes sense.

Bowling has been around for ages and spans all continents in nations – but it takes many forms. Here are a few fun facts you may have never heard before.

A sport as old as … the written word?
According to the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame, a British anthropologist discovered in the 1930s evidence of bowling items in an Egyptian grave. Evidence suggests that bowling dates back as far as 3200 BC – around the same time that some of the first forms of the written word were discovered on cuneiform tablets. It’s that old!

Modern bowling is only a few thousand years younger: indoor bowling lanes made their debut in 1840 in New York City. The first televised games appeared in 1950.

There are so many great things about bowling that I don't even know where to begin. First things first, bowling is so great because just about everyone on this planet can do it. Not only does everyone have the ability to do it, but they can do it at almost anytime of the year! There is no certain weather needed to bowl. Unless you find an outdoor bowling alley, which are pretty awesome I must add.
