THE BLIND BOWLERS LEAGUE-CANCELLED

The Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired Community Services program is proud to announce the formation of a new Blind Bowlers League that will begin play in January 2014. As LightHouse is in the process of establishing this exciting new league, we cordially invite blind and low vision individuals of all ages and experience to join us.

Our initial goal is to recruit enough interested—and dedicated—bowlers to form four teams comprised of 3-4 bowlers. Individuals and self-formed teams are encouraged to apply. Each team shall have no more than (1) sighted person. However, that person will be required to wear a sleep shade (occluded) throughout play. Self-formed teams are encouraged to submit a predetermined team name.

League play will initially take place every Tuesday from 1pm-4pm at Albany Bowl, which is located just three short blocks from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station. The cost is $10.00 per person per week. Fees include bowling shoe rental and unlimited bowling for three hours. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from Albany Bowl.

Once league play commences, a structured tournament schedule will be established and distributed. Lane bumpers are optional. A handicap will be determined for those choosing to utilize lane bumpers.
