Today is National Bowling Day so here's why bowling is a great date night idea for you and your lover. 

It's just fun!

It's just fun!

It's fun- Bowling is not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when you say 'date night' but when you get there, you realise how great it is and ask yourself why you don't do this more often as a couple.

It's a bit of healthy competition for you both- There's nothing wrong with going up against each other if it's all in jest. Plus the winner can get their real prize back at home.

It's a very social activity- Although you are there to do a specific thing- you can have little chats in between throws- it inspires conservations about something new.

You can make it as long or as short as you like- If you're only up for a couple of games before you leave- you can keep it brief or if you are enjoying yourselves- you can play a few more rounds.

You can combine it with something else- A few drinks at a bar, a meal out or as a way to end a day out. If you are enjoying each other's company- it can form the basis fun filled day of different activities.

It gets you moving- Better than sitting the cinema or on the couch, it will get those endorphins rushing around your bodies so you will be happy company for each other.

It's doesn't matter if you're good or bad- Anyone can go so if one of you is an expert bowler while the other needs the barriers up- that's ok- you can both still enjoy the same experience.

You can admire your partner's bottom at regular intervals- You're not telling me that you have any interest in their bowling skills when they are bent over in front of you!
