Go bowling together date idea illustration

Whether you’re an experienced bowler or a complete novice, bowling is a great way to have some fun with your partner. It’s a relatively inexpensive date night option, and it’s a great way to get some exercise. Here are a few tips to make the most of your bowling date:

Preparation steps:

  • Choose a bowling alley that's convenient for both of you. If you're traveling from out of town, look for an alley that's close to your hotel.
  • Arrive a few minutes early to get your shoes and balls. This will give you time to warm up and practice a few throws before your game starts.
  • If you’re new to bowling, don’t be afraid to ask for help from the staff at the bowling alley. They can help you with everything from renting shoes to choosing the right size ball.
  • Don’t take the game too seriously. Bowling is supposed to be fun, so relax and enjoy yourself.
  • If you’re competitive, make a friendly wager with your partner on who will win the game. The loser can buy dinner, drinks, or dessert afterward.
  • Take a break in between games to grab a bite to eat or a drink. Most bowling alleys have a bar or snack area where you can relax and refuel.
  • After your last game, head to the arcade to play a few rounds of your favorite games. This is a great way to end your date night on a high note.
