Yes Big Gee, Warwick Bowl in Acocks Green.
Do I recall this correctly Stirchley Bowl was also a moving picture house ?Not living in Birmingham at the time...I got obsessed with 10 pin bowling around 1962. Was a member of the BTBA and played in several leagues. Our team would travel around the country challenging teams, nothing serious though. We did go to Brum, I recall the Stirchley Bowl, maybe because I was in top form there. I still have achievement badges from Stirchley Bowl. I also recall a bowling alley at the bottom of Hurst st, it was upstairs...
hi G i am sure there must be one or two allys dotted around brum...i tried it a couple of times years ago but the problem i had was remembering to swing and let go of the ballI used to really enjoy tenpin, played every Friday after work at the Stirchley Bowl. Later at the one down the Hagley Road, forget what it was called, but it seemed to be where the real whiz-kids played. I did get quite good at one time, but haven't played for 40 years, since we lived in the USA. I remember I used a 14lb ball. Are there any tenpin alleys still in Brum?
Any chance of a discount!Great bowling action in Photo 1, Lyn, but what happened in Photo 2? It hurts, doesn't it....? How do I know? Need you ask......
Slightly off-thread, I tried indoor short-mat bowling a few years ago, partly because my employer actually made the mats and as their sales-manager it was felt I should have hands-on knowledge. Obviously a much less dramatic and physical game than tenpin, but pleasant and also not at all easy.
