As a fun sport that can be played by practically anyone, there's no wonder bowling is one of the most popular family activities around!
If you're really hooked into bowling and want to step it up a notch, it might be a good idea to join a bowling league and get some consistent action at the lanes. Here's how you can go about joining the right league for you.
Find out what you want
Although many people think of bowling leagues as strictly competitive affairs, there are a range of leagues catering to almost every age and skill level.
Ask yourself what you really want from joining a league - are you after a chance to mingle and make new friends or seriously compete with the hope of landing a trophy?
Check your schedule
Whether it's due to school or work commitments, you might find it hard to fit in a spot of team bowling on a regular basis.
That's why the best bowling centres offer leagues running at various times of the day and week, so you can pick and choose one to fit your schedule.
Head to your nearest AMF
Once you've decided what kind of league you want to join and how you can fit it into your schedule, it's time to come in and speak to the team at AMF!
They'll happily discuss your needs with you and find a suitable league to join.
Get the right gear
You can of course still use the balls and shoes provided by the bowling centre - but now you're a league pro, why not invest in your own equipment?
The pro shops at AMF offer a wide range of balls and shoes to choose from, which you can customise for ultimate comfort. You can even get them emblazoned with your team's colours to make a real statement at the lanes!
