“Dear PoPville,

In Washington, D.C. and the inner suburbs, opportunities for USBC-sanctioned bowling leagues *without* disco lighting and *with* properly oiled lanes are few and far between.

But we suspect that the city has more than a few bowlers, like us, who used to be pretty serious about it but, since moving to the area, have sadly watched their bowling balls gather dust. Or folks who used to be on a company team back in the days when company bowling teams were as common as company softball teams. Or people who have tried the “social league” thing and even bought a ball and are now interested in joining a proper league.

“We” is a small group of friends who bowled together more than a decade ago in the wintry bowling splendor that is Western New York and are now gauging interest for a 2018-2019 United State Bowling Congress-sanctioned league here in the DC area. Location, day of the week, fees, rules, etc. are TBD based on a preliminary survey of those who are seriously interested, negotiations with bowling alleys in the area, and ultimately by league members or board.

Send a quick email to [email protected] to get looped in as this takes shape.”
