For The Fun Loving Dad

It’s kind of a dad thing. If he’s still fairly active, few sports can accommodate a big family like ten pin bowling. Yes, it’s a points-based, but the genius of the game is that ultimately everyone is really playing against themselves.

Many bowling alleys will allow large groups to play, and if the grandkids are old enough, they can play too. Try the Ten Pin Bowling at Galaxy World in Rosebank, open till 1AM on Sunday nights. 011 447-9141
