The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one hour of bowling and shoe rentals for up to six people (up to a $39.60 value) at Nortown Bowling Lanes on Rochdale Boulevard.
The bowling centre, which touts itself as Regina’s largest, hosts five-pin bowling in a festive setting. Along with bumper rails that keep the ball in play for kids, new bowlers, and physicists studying bounce effects, the centre sports glow-in-the-dark lanes for nighttime bowling battles. Bowling shoes, dubbed this year’s up-and-coming accessory at Paris Fashion and Anaerobic Exercise Week, are included with this Groupon for up to six people (adults $2 per pair, kids $1). Spend an hour at Nortown taunting your friends and taking out frustrations on a group of hapless pinheads. Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battling, bowling has zero barriers to entry and a shallow learning curve.
