To join a local bowling league, meet with a league coordinator at a local bowling center to find a league that matches your skill level. Leagues exist for bowlers of all levels, from beginning bowlers to veteran and championship bowlers.
If you're looking to join a league, you need a solid grasp of your playing style and level of commitment. Time commitment is the largest concern. Review the schedule and length of the bowling league season before joining any bowling team. The coordinator for bowling leagues is a useful resource for narrowing down your options and finding a league that matches your preferences. The coordinator can help connect you with teams that need new players.
When finding a league, check with multiple bowling centers in the area to explore all your options. Bowling centers may offer different time slots and types of leagues. You may also find the atmosphere at some bowling centers more comfortable than others. One bowling center may have a serious, competitive attitude towards bowling leagues, whereas another may be more recreational.
After finding a league that matches your preferences, meet with other team members. Meeting other bowlers gives a team the chance to build useful relationships.
