Roll up to join the celebrations for Bowling Day! This fun occasion aims to get more people involved in the sport. Since the event was founded in the USA in 2011, it has proved to be a striking success.

Bowling is one of the world’s most popular participation sports, with around 100 million enthusiasts. It appeals to all ages and both sexes, and many people with disabilities are keen bowlers.

The sport may date back to ancient Egyptian times, as primitive bowls have been found in graves from around 5,000 BC. Much later, Henry VIII was a keen bowler, but banned working men from taking part in case they neglected their duties.

Thousands of centres are offering free taster sessions for Bowling Day, so the ideal way to celebrate is to take to the lanes. You could well be bowled over by how much fun it is.
