Looking to organize a company/corporate party or event? Bowling Parties are your answer!

Running out of fresh and unique ideas for that next corporate event you need to organize? Let’s face it – it’s not always easy to please everyone. You need to find something that is fun, let’s all employees participate and work together as a team irrespective of age, gender and ability and you also need to take care of finer details like food and beverages.

But company group events are more than just about having employees hang out together and have a good time. Corporate team building events serve an important purpose. They are essential to promote employee unity, strengthen interpersonal relationships and build trust within the workplace.

Training programs are a rising trend and are increasingly popular amongst companies today. Organizations realize the need for conducting regular interactive group events to inculcate team building skills. These programs DO NOT have to be formal! Agreed that seminars and discussions about team building, leadership and other important work topics have their place but a practical, interactive fun experience will no doubt deliver an unforgettable experience.

Corporate Bowling Parties

If you’re looking to organize a corporate group event for your company, look no further than bowling parties. Bowling parties are not only entertaining; they’re a great way to socialize, encourage group interaction and are made to fit your corporate budget.

With bowling parties, size does not matter! As a small company or a large corporation, you can organize bowling parties and events for your employees. It is advised to make a reservation with your local bowling centre to reserve some lanes for the party in advance. You can reserve your bowling lanes online here at Planet Bowl. You can also order food like fresh hot pizzas and cool beverages to feed your staff.

Organizing teams and randomly assigning people from different levels of the company to each team is a great idea to help co-workers to get to know each other. Inter-staff tournaments add an element of competition making them highly entertaining. One of the plus points of bowling is that it is a sport with a very small learning curve making it easy to learn and play. People of any age, skill and even physical disabilities can bowl.

How Do Bowling Leagues Work?

There are many different kinds of bowling leagues. Adult and youth bowling to mixed leagues for both sexes.

Striking FUN with kids birthday parties at your local bowling alley

Striking FUN with kids birthday parties at your local bowling alley

Is your child’s birthday around the corner? Kids’ birthday parties are a very popular occurrence and parents are always looking for something different to do for their child’s special day. We all know that one of the most tedious things about hosting your child’s birthday party is trying to come up with ideas that will keep the children entertained.

There are usually 4 factors that make a successful birthday party for a child:

  1. They need something fun and unique to do.
  2. Exciting activities where they can burn off energy.
  3. A place that they can eat AND do activities.
  4. And most importantly – something that keeps their interest!

When you have a bowling party, everything is tailor made for you. Bowling parties are most popular for kids’ birthday parties. You’ll find that most reputable bowling centers have birthday party packages available and most serve food and beverages. Bowling parties are great for younger children as the bowling lanes have bumpers, preventing the ball from ending up in the gutter. Seeing excited, enthusiastic children really having a good time should be enough to convince you that holding kids birthday parties at a bowling alley is a big hit amongst kids – and their parents!

Here are 3 things to keep in mind when planning kids’ birthday parties at your local bowling alley:

  1. Age: A good age to have your child’s party is after he/she is at least 5 years old. Kids under this age will have trouble with even the lightest bowling ball.
  2. People: Usually you can have a maximum of 8-10 kids per bowling lane.
  3. Date & Time: Every bowling alley differs in when they hold public events. It is best to call ahead of time and make a reservation. You can also ask about special event at certain times, such as cosmic bowling.
