History of National Bowling Day
Bowling is one of the world’s most famous participation sports, with around 100 million enthusiasts. It attracts all ages, and both the sexes and many people with disabilities are keen bowlers. The sport may date back to old Egyptian times, as primitive bowls have been found in tombs from around 5,000 BC. Much later, Henry VIII was a keen bowler but banned workers from taking part in case they missed their duties.
