Bowling Team Names on Vintage Bowling Shirts


Through the years, bowling teams have usually put a lot of energy into creating a unique name. Over the years, team names have been taken from bowling lingo, a double entendre or from innuendo.

However, some teams can simply have the sponsor on the back of their bowling shirts to signify themselves.

Team names can often be chosen to simply represent cultures and hometowns.

Bowling Shirts Remain Fashionable Although Bowling Is Not

Many bowling alleys in the U.S. that have been in business for decades are gradually shutting their doors as bowling loses popularity as a sport.

One such bowling center is Fairway in Massachusettes, whose faithful bowlers, nearly all in their 80s, are saddened by its closing.  “When we opened, everyone bowled,’’ said the 84-year-old owner of Fairway.

Within five years of opening in the 1950s, Fairway expanded from 16 to 32 lanes. In those days, there was a $1 charge for three games.

Bowling alleys have had a slow demise since the 1980s along with roller-skating complexes which also had their heyday in the 1950s.

All the while, the nostalgia for days gone by is seen everywhere through bowling shirt fashion.  The sport may be dying, but the fashion lives on!
