About The Event
After a milestone anniversary and record-breaking support, we're bringing the beach to the bowling alley for Beach Bowl 2018! On April 21, grab your shorts, sunglasses and bowling shoes for the 31st annual Ability Bowl in Swift Current.
Funds raised from Ability Bowl will support the programs and services offered by the Swift Current Branch of SaskAbilities. With the help of bowlers, pledgers, sponsors and volunteers, we can continue providing these vital programs and make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals experiencing disability.Bowling
The Ability Bowl will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Frontier Bowling Lanes in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Specific bowling times will be communicated closer to the event.
Each bowling team must have a minimum of five players, one of which will be nominated as the team captain. The team captain is responsible for getting the team members registered, fundraising and to the event on time. They will be the main contact person for the team as well.
Each team will bowl two games, one regular game and one fun bowl game. The fun bowl is played after game one of each shift. The first lane to get a strike wins! The fun bowl involves bowling in different postures ie. one hand on your head, bowling between the legs of another player, etc.
