Asheville Pride Bowling Organization
The Asheville Pride Bowling Organization or Asheville Pride as we are known, begins bowling our 2nd full year on September 11th. We will have an organizational meeting beginning at 7pm.
Our bowling season is split into two 15 week seasons. Our first half finishes before the Christmas holidays and we start the 2nd half after New Years.
You do not have to bowl in both seasons to compete, but we are looking for bowlers that can commit to at least 15 weeks - and hopefully you will be able to bowl all 30 weeks and stay with the league for our laid back 12 week summer season that begins in May!
Last year we had 16 teams - great for our 1st year. But, we are hoping to be bigger and better in 2018-2019, so we are looking for returning bowlers and new bowlers to join us in September! All skill levels, including you bowlers who say you are terrible at bowling, are welcome. You are guaranteed to get better every week with practice! We are recruiting full teams of 4 bowlers, couples and singles. If you don’t have a team, we will find you one!
Asheville Pride is a member of IGBO - International Gay Bowling Association whose main mission is fun and fellowship across the U.S. and beyond. If you are new to Western North Carolina or lived here a long time and looking to make new friends, then Tuesday night is your place to be!
