Why bowling is a great sport for the kids


We believe New Zealand is the home of sport. From our numerous world cup victories to our successes in most global sports, Kiwi’s know how to win!

For a parent, this can mean that helping your children choose a sport to pursue can be tricky. Why not turn your favourite family recreation into a fully fledged sporting option.

Although it's not a traditional Aussie pastime, Bowling can be just as exciting, rewarding and fun as scoring the winning try. Here are a few benefits of getting your kids involved in bowling.

1) It's a social sport 

Bowling might seem like a mind game between you and the pins, but it's definitely more than that. Between strikes, you can share good conversation and laughter with your team, making lifelong friends in the process.

For kids who are a little shy, running around a field might be overwhelming - highlighting the value of the rather peaceful environment of the bowling lane!

2) Learning about numbers 

Bowling can be more than just a physically challenging sport. Tenpin bowling can also stimulate the mind by hiding maths and counting skills in every game.

Even with computers keeping score, kids learn to work out how many pins they need to knock out and calculate their own totals. Maths has never been so fun!

3) Equipment isn't expensive 

Considering you can rent most of the equipment for a small amount, bowling is quite a cheap sport compared to other pursuits. All your kids need is a decent pair of shoes, a bowling ball and a lane that they can find at ZONE BOWLING.
