Funded by Brighton Pride Social Impact Fund, Diverse City Bowlers (DCB) offers a bowling event which will be free for everyone 50 and over with a focus on elderly LGBT+ people.
The event will take place at 8pm on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at the Brighton Hollywood in Brighton Marina. It is open to everybody regardless of their sexuality and you do not have to be experienced in bowling.
There is enough scientific evidence that suggest those who participate in fun, supportive and energetic group activities are healthier, happier and more youthful.
DCB believe Ten Pin Bowling is a great social activity which has a positive effect on health and well-being. Through laughter, silliness and companionship, knocking down pins provides additional pay-offs in terms of well-being, and mental and physical health.

DCB are in their second season ten pin blowing. On league nights they play three games in teams of two. The scores are collected and tracked so that every member has a good idea of their playing strength and improvement. These scores may also be used for placements if and when members wish to participate in IGBO Leagues/Tournaments and/or International Gay Games in the future.
Many of the team do not use their real names, instead assuming Bowling personas like Bowling Queen or Glitter Balls to make the game even more fun (you are, of course, free to use your real name). You and your bowling buddy need to have a team name, and you can be as creative as you like (of course, nothing derogatory, racist or illegal).
DCB value the joy of Bowling more than they value winning. You will be expected to share the same sentiment and etiquette.
DCB recently won the Corporate Cup at Leap Sports Scotland 6th Annual National Tenpin Bowling Tournament which was a part of LGBT History Month.
