So what is the average age of your bowling league players where you live? I have no info cause I have yet to join a league. I am 31 so lets use that as an arbitrary line. How many people in your leagues are over or under the age of 31?

Thanks

Each league has its own unique demographics. The vast majority of bowlers in my league are in the 45-65 age range and have bowled in the same league for several years. Most of the bowlers under 31 are children of longtime members. Perhaps one or two new teams per year are composed of 20-somethings and not related or connected to anyone else.

The most important factor in selecting a league is not age, but skill level and competitiveness. League bowling is much like a job; it requires a weekly time commitment over several months, along with a significant financial commitment.

If you are investing hundreds of dollars into bowling at the same day and time over about 30 weeks, you want a league that fits your ability and your focus level. It is no fun getting beat badly week after week by all-business semi-pros. Likewise, if you enjoy the socializing but all the other teams take bowling quite seriously, it would not be a good match.

To find the right league, do some research. Go to local bowling centers on days and times that you have open. Watch the league bowlers for a game or two, noting whether a fair number are similar to your skill level and have personalities you can get along with. If all looks good to you, find out who is the league secretary and ask about openings for next season -- or this season, if the league recently started.

I'd say that the average in our league is about 50, maybe more.  Youngest is my son at 18, next youngest is 28 or so, then 31 or so, then it goes up quite a bit from there.
