LEAP Sport Scotland’s National Tenpin Bowling Competition is returning in February 2015 to celebrate LGBT History Month.

Taking part couldn’t be simpler – just follow these 5 key steps:

  1. Get a team of four assembled;
  2. Select a date, time & venue (must be between 1st & 15th February);
  3. Sign up on our website ;
  4. Visit your selected bowling centre as planned and play two games each, ensuring to combine all 8 scores to create a collective team score; and
  5. Submit confirmation of your score together with a picture of your group for our gallery to

Teams can opt to compete at any venue on a date of their choice between 1st & 15th, or can take part in one of the planned heats taking place in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen which we have arranged. Details are:

Edinburgh Friday 6th February
Glasgow Friday 13th February
Aberdeen Saturday 14th February

LEAP Sports Scotland won’t be charging to coordinate this event, however those participating will have to pay for lane and shoe hire at their venue of choice.

On Sunday 15th February 2015 we will post our National Competition Heats League Table and will invite the top ten teams to participate in our National Final to be hosted at AMF Bowling in Stirling on Saturday 28th February 2015. Lane and shoe hire costs will be covered for all ten teams participating in the National Final, however teams will be asked to cover their own transport costs.

So: start assembling your team and let the heats commence!

LGBT History Month is an annual LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) event which takes place every February and celebrates all things LGBT – past, present and future. It brings the community together through a wide variety of events including arts, film screenings, coffee mornings, poetry readings, charity events and more. LEAP Sport Scotland will work with the organisers of LGBT History Month to ensure that sport becomes central to events and activities taking place throughout the month.

Further details about LGBT History Month can be found on their website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
