Bowling: a game passed down from our ancestors to enjoy with our loved ones

History reveals that bowling has been enjoyed as a pastime in Egypt dating all the way back to 5200 BC when bowling looked a little different – there were not fancy facilities, not bright lights and the ball was actually made of stone! The rules differed a little from what we are familiar with today. Even though bowling has changed over the centuries, it’s still a popular sport in many countries worldwide for both adults and children alike.

 

The joy of bowling comes from quality time spent with friends and family around a lively game. This has been the goal from its inception, but how is an activity that was practiced in ancient Egypt still so strong and popular today?

 

Well, the history of bowling in Mexico is not quite as old as you may think. In fact, we just began to enjoy this game in the late 1960s after it arrived from our northern neighbor: The United States. Later, in the 80s, bowling received another popularity boost with the arrival of automatic scoring machines.

 

Nowadays, bowling is a sport in Mexico that is entertaining for all ages - children, youth and adults, no matter the level of expertise. It’s so popular that you can find bowling alleys in the most unexpected places!
