Bowling. Seems like a simple sport, right? Take a ball, roll it down the lane, knock all ten pins down, couldnít get any easier than that, right? Actually, itís a lot more difficult than might think.

During the last few seasons of league bowling at Broadway Bowl, several bowlers have improved their game to the point where in-house records have been broken, along with many 300 games, and insanely improved averages amongst most of the league bowlers.

Broadway Bowl first opened its doors in 1950 and has seen many great bowlers compete there over the years. During the first ten years that it was open, a 700 series (total combined score of three games) was unheard of.
