  Ladies Bowling

Do you enjoy bowling? Do you like to get out and have some fun being active and socializing with other Troy Newcomers? Are your Tuesday mornings open? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then come join our bowling league in the Fall! You don’t have to be an experienced bowler to join. All levels are welcome. It’s a fun and social league. We bowl weekly on Tuesday mornings at Troy Lanes at 9:30am from September thru April. For more information or to join the league, please contact Susan H. If you would like to join us but can’t commit to every week, we always need subs for the league.  It’s friendly, fun, non-competitive (mostly), we get a little exercise and it’s a great way to socialize with the Club!!
