- How much do you pay for each game?
- We have a reduced rate for our league. This normally depends on Bowling Alley’s price adjustments so it is subject to change. At the moment it is £3 per game.
2. What happens if I am in a team but cannot play on a League night?
- Easy. You will get 0 points for that night. Make sure you let your other team player and us know before the games start. In order to be fair towards your team and other players, we reserve the right to fill your space with another player if you appear tardy and/or inattentive.
3. I am not very good at bowling. Will it look odd if I come but play badly? Are you all very good?
- We are not professional bowling players, and every one of us plays badly sometimes. No fear, you will fit right in.
4. How did you come up with your name?
- Over a casual bowling game with our friends, we had an excruciatingly intense brainstorming session. At the end we decided the name represents us and Brighton & Hove really well.
5. I have some free time. Can I help you with anything?
- We always welcome any help you might be willing to provide. Please email us and we’ll take it from there.
6. Is your favourite movie “The Big Lebowski”?
- Certainly not.
7. How safe is Bowling? Is it possible to hurt myself?
- As Bowling requires throwing quite a substantial size ball, almost every major muscle group is used whilst playing. The calf, hamstring and quadriceps muscle groups in the legs are involved in approach. The triceps, forearm and upper back muscles push forward and support the ball during the release. Therefore you need to be careful. You do not have to be super fit, but anyone with back problems or joint problems like tennis elbow should seek advice from their GP first and be mindful of their movements.
8. Is there a dating element to your activities?
- We don’t offer introductions or facilitate dating activities, but if you meet someone you like……who knows?
9. Can I bring my own food and drink to the bowling?
- You can bring small items like sweets and energy bars but food, soft drinks and alcohol can only be purchased from the venue.
10. Are there any age restrictions on taking part?
- You have to be 18+ to take part in our activities.
11. Is this league sanctioned?
- No and it does not have to be. We are, however, in contact with BTBA and discussing several options.
12. Scratch or Handicap?
- There are advantages and disadvantages to both of them. Scratch may not be always fair, whereas through Sandbagging (look it up in our Bowling Dictionary page) it is easy to cheat in Handicap. At the moment, for a straightforward start, “what you score is what you get”.
