Benefits of a family bowling night

Wonder if bowling is for you? Or if your family will enjoy a bowling outing? Bowling, or gaming in general, can be a great way to bond as a family. Below is a list of reasons to start a family bowling tradition.

• Nobody is left out. Here is the great thing about bowling...anyone can do it and you don't need your own equipment. Show up and the lanes will have the shoes and the bowling balls all ready for you. While you probably won't score a perfect score your first time out, you can usually knock down a pin or two without too much practice. A small victory, but it will still give everyone in the family something to cheer about. Have little ones that always throw gutter balls? That's what side bumpers are for, ensuring everyone stays on the lane (and scores).

• Get some exercise. Ok, it's not running a marathon, but bowling is a lot more exercise than sitting on the couch. Head to the lanes and stretch your body in new ways. Besides, bowling lanes have the benefit of being climate controlled, air conditioned in summer and heated in winter. You can get out and get active without much discomfort.

• A group activity. While it's true that when you are bowling everyone is striving for their own high score, you are also working as a group and watching the scores of others. For families, it can be a welcome change from sitting in a living room while everyone stares at their device. (Tip: make bowling night a technology-free event.)

• Affordable. Ok, for this one it all depends on the consumer. It is possible to spend a lot bowling, particularly if you aren't looking for deals and are ordering up beverages and snacks with every frame. But, if you are on a budget, know that many lanes offer passes and two-for-one nights. There are even free summer bowling programs for kids when school is out.
