Labor Day has come and gone, and that means a large number of South Jersey’s armchair athletes, its league bowlers, will be getting back in action. Bowling is big in New Jersey, and in a lot of other places.
The Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America reported another strong year of growth for the industry in 2009. Bowling recorded its fourth consecutive year of growth highlighted by a 4.6% increase in consumer participation. Nearly 70 million people bowled in 2009 alone.
