I often get assigned the task of recruiting new members for our bowling club. And there is one question that tends to come up, whenever I make a pitch to a prospective member. That is the question as to why they should take up bowling (and not one of the other numerous sports). In answering this question, I usually give a brief speech on why bowling is the perfect sport. And for today’s article, I decided to highlight some of the main points in that speech: that is, some of the key reasons as to why bowling is the perfect sport:
Bowling doesn’t have too many rules
Most of the other sports tend to have many, stifling rules. Sometimes, one gets the impression that the many rules end up sapping the fun out of those other sports. But bowling has just a couple or so rules. It doesn’t require military-standard discipline (why, you could even eat and drink while bowling!). The upshot is that bowling is a simple sport, one that is easy to understand and play. And there aren’t many controversies in bowling games – thanks to the clarity, simplicity and straightforwardness of the rules.
Bowling doesn’t sap too much energy
Most of the other sports are rather energy consuming. Bowling, on the other hand, is the sort of sport you can take part in even when you are tired, as a way to relax. This is because it is not very demanding, at a physical level.
Bowling doesn’t require a fixed number of players
Most of the other sports require a fixed number of players — and you can’t form a team and start playing unless you get that number of players. With bowling, it is different. There is flexibility. You can play as two people. You can also play as a dozen people. Such flexibility is truly amazing.
Bowling doesn’t require lots of equipment
Most of the alleys where bowling is done tend to have all the equipment you need. Therefore, all you have to do is show up, and start taking part in a game. And you aren’t required to pay lots of money to take part in bowling games. Even if all you have is a small balance in a gift card, it will probably still be enough to pay for a bowling game. With a gift card (as alluded above), you can go to, say, the mygiftcardsite login page, sign in — and proceed to check the balance. Then, as per the information in the Mygiftcardsite guide, you can use the funds to pay for anything – including bowling games. The nice thing here is the fact that even with 10 or 20 bucks, you may be in a position to still enjoy a bowling game in most of the alleys where the game is played.
