2010 Looks To Be Up Year for Bowling

Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA), the bowling industry’s premier trade organization, reports significant growth year for the bowling industry in 2010. 

Industry Sees 4.6% Increase in Consumer Participation with Nearly 70 Million Having Bowled in 2009. Bowling Again Ranks as Nation’s Number One Participatory Sport, Following Four Consecutive Years of Growth for the Industry

“We saw a banner growth year for the industry in 2009 and, for the fourth year in a row, enjoyed a considerable increase in consumer involvement at bowling centers across the country. In particular, we continue to see rising participation among women and youth bowlers, a stark contrast to the misperception that bowling is dominated by older males,” said Steve Johnson, executive director of the BPAA. “Now more than 60% of all bowlers are under the age of 34 and half are women.”
