Bowling

Bowling is an intramural sport? Sure is! Great way to meet 200 people for 8 weeks in the winter!

How it Works:

 

 

"The IndyCatholic bowling league is my go-to for late fall/early winter sporting fun. The first time I signed up for the league, I literally knew one person there. Despite that, I found it very easy to meet and get to know people that I might not have had an opportunity to meet otherwise. I would say it's one of the best activities to be a part of in terms of meeting new people (or even actually talking to people that you see around, but never actually talk to). There is no need to worry about your bowling skills (or lack thereof, in my case) - you're going to have a great time regardless." // Justin, a young adult on the west side

 

 

Imagine 30 lanes, 100's of people, 8 weeks, 2 nights, lots of food, drinks and fun! This year, we will continue the tradition and gather at Hindel Bowling Lanes on the eastside two nights a week since we won't all fit on one night anymore! #growingpains

 

Tuesday night and Wednesday night league - sign up for one or both!

Tuesdays: Oct 15th - Dec 10th (skip week of Thanksgiving)

Wednesdays: Oct 16th - Dec 11th (skip week of Thanksgiving)

 

Hindel Bowling Lanes

Bowling takes place from October through December at Hindel Bowling Lanes (6833 Massachusetts Avenue Indianapolis, IN 46226). Hindel is one of the last family-owned alleys in the city and has been here since 1957. Amenities include hardwood lanes (they don’t make ‘em like this anymore!) and a snack bar and lounge.  Lanes open for practice at 6:50p with the league beginning at 7p each week.

 

Teams

Each team has 6 players total. To ensure a good experience for all, we encourage you to commit to coming to all the games. This builds team spirit and will not leave your team in a lurch if you are not there. For this reason, we ask that you commit to coming to AT LEAST 6 of the 8 weeks. We know that things happen that cannot be foreseen, but besides that, we ask that you make this a real commitment.

 

*You may only bowl for the team that you are registered with. No rule about # of guys vs ladies. Team captains will be able to call a sub to fill in.

 

Rules and Regulations

Hindel will also be organizing our schedule and league standings. Each week they will post updated information on their website. You will be able to see how well your team is doing as well as your own progress. This is also where you will see which team you will be playing the next week. They have a ‘handicap’ rule for all of us who bowl below 200. They simply add 100% of the difference of your average and 200. This enables all teams, no matter what your skill level, to have a chance at winning.

 

Hindel Bowling Lanes also has an extensive list of rules that will be given out to each team captain the first night. This will explain everything, including how scoring and league standings work.
