Bowling: Why the Classic Sport Has Been Enjoyed for Centuries , Shelby, Wisconsin

If you trace bowling back to its origins, you will find ancient Egyptians rolling husks bound in leather and string along the ground toward a target. Artifacts related to the sport have also been discovered in Asia Minor, the Roman Empire, and Germany, where it was used as either a sport or a form of religious ritual. From target ball bowling greens built in the Middle Ages to the modern day bowling alleys found all over the world, it has been enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds for centuries.

There are many reasons the popularity of bowling has endured over the years. Below are a few:

  • Anyone Can Do It: Regardless of age, body type or strength, nearly anyone can participate in bowling. In recent decades, technology has even assisted people with disabilities to compete in the sport.
  • bowlingCheap Date Night: If you want a place to eat, drink, and have some fun with your partner, a bowling alley is an ideal destination. It’s affordable and facilitates light, engaging conversation.
  • Hang Out With Friends: Bowling is more than just a sport—it’s a physical activity that brings friends and family together to cherish each other’s company. This makes it an excellent idea for weekend hangouts and weekday get-togethers.
  • Play While Eating: While some sports require you to set aside fare to participate, bowling is a non-intensive sport that encourages eating and drinking while the game is still rolling. Most bowling alleys have a restaurant and bar for pizza, brews, and other popular menu items.


With an extensive history reaching back to the early days of civilization, bowling continues to be appreciated by people today.
