Bowling is a sport that is right down everyone’s alley, however, it requires a fair amount of skill or just sheer dumb luck to be good at it. Put your skills to the test and see whether you’re a natural with today’s Groupon: Pay R25 per person for two games at Lighthouses Tenpin Bowling.
Whether you throw the ball over your head, roll it gracefully down the lane or fall flat on your face with every attempt, bowling is fun, competitive and the only time you will ever look good in bowling shoes. Sure, there are the professionals who have tailor-made uniforms with their names emblazoned across their chests (usually names like Charlie or Frankie) but they had to start somewhere, somewhere being the gutter.
Take a few pointers from the pro in the lane next door or simply challenge a few friends to two friendly games. Choose the ball that suits your personality and ability best, whether it’s the “fiery red blazon” ball, the blue “look at me roll” ball or even the “leave you green with envy” ball, you can be sure that after two games you’ll leave all your friends gobsmacked with your mad skills.
Bowling fact #145: In the stone ages people would use the bones from dinosaurs as bowling pins. However, what they used as balls differed from country to country. In Jamaica they used coconuts while those living in the Grand Canyon used boulders. The number one team in the world, Iceland, used balls of ice. Iceland also had the quickest bowling team due to the melting ice.
