Daily Top 10: Where To Strike-out at Long Island's Bowling Alleys

Written by Hannah M.  |  08. March 2012

Bowling: a sport in which players score points by rolling a bowling ball along a flat surface, usually a wooden or other synthetic surface, into pins. Common bowling games include ten pins at the end of the bowling lane. The sport can be dated back as far as Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire though standardized rules were not established until 1985 in New York City. Bowling offers players many benefits. Besides being a social sport with leagues that help promote friendship, bonding and team-building skills, bowling also proves to be a decent source of exercise.  Bowling is an anaerobic exercise, meaning it is intense enough to trigger anaerobic metabolism and promotes strength, speed and power and the building of muscle mass, similarly to walking with free weights. In addition to burning calories, muscles that are not usually exercised such as tendons, joints and ligaments get a good working out. No matter the player’s age or skill level, bowling is a game that can be enjoyed by most everyone.
