The game of bowling dates all the way back to 3200BC, where it originated in Egypt. It wasn’t until 1895, that the American Bowling Congress was born, and the sport of bowling began to have a unified structure. In the 1950’s, bowling began being broadcasted on television and really took off as a competitive sport all over the world. Bowling’s popularity spread quickly for numerous reasons, mostly surrounding the health benefits.
The first National Bowling Day was held in 1956. On this second Saturday in August, hundreds of bowling tournaments across 48 states, attracted millions of bowlers across the country to come together to raise money for the American Red Cross. Although the event was never repeated, National Bowling Day is still a country-wide day to celebrate.
