Did you know...

  • Over 100 million people in more than 90 countries practice the game of bowling, making it one of the most popular and universally loved forms of recreation on the planet.
  • The history of bowling can be traced back to the Stone Age.
  • The first written mention of the game was made by the King Edward III in the year 1366. In this reference, he allegedly imposed a ban on playing this game among his troops because it was distracting the troops from archery practice.
  • In America, the very first mention of the word “bowling” is found in the book Rip Van Winkle, a famous story by Washington Irving, who gets woken up by the sound of "crashing ninepins" that was published during 1812.
