TEENS & TENPINS
For many adult bowlers, love of the sport started at an early age. Be it joining a children’s league, bowling with friends and family or joining school leagues, bowling is unique in its accessibility for athletes of all ages. During the middle of the twentieth century, bowling’s top organizations encouraged kids to take up the sport. The American Junior Bowling Congress (AJBC) formed in 1946 and was supported by the American Bowling Congress and the Women’s International Bowling Congress. When the AJBC merged with the BPAA’s Youth Bowling Association in 1982, they formed the Young American Bowling Alliance (YABA).
