GVDBC Deaf Bowling League

bowling logoCome out and have some fun at GVDBC Deaf Bowling League @ Rev’s. (formerly the Brentwood Recreational Centre, just next to Holdom Skytrain Station)

Anyone interested is welcome. We accept teams of 3 persons (or more) or you can join as individual.

We only bowl for 24 weeks, shorter than most leagues in Metro Vancouver. We have a split-season format, so your team will have more than one chance to make it into the final playoffs in March.

League play begins Saturday, September 19th at 9:45 AM.

We will have many exciting events, like going to Toronto on May 2010 for National Deaf Championships (10-pins & 5-pins), and going to USA for NWBAD tournament every March. Come on and meet new friends!
