Just a little background to let you know what Balls & Babes is all about.
Nate and I started Balls & Babes as a team name when we bowled LV Showgirl in 2019. Since Showgirl was so close to the start of the winter season, and we already had the jerseys, we decided to keep the name for our winter league.
As many of you know, we absolutely LOVE this sport. For the longest time, it’s been on my heart to find a way to help get more people interested in bowling and help grow the sport. We decided to transform Balls & Babes from simply a team name into an organization to promote the sport.
Soooo...before the pandemic basically shut down LIFE, I had started coordinating teams to bowl tournaments together. When our bowling centers reopened, I realized the need to get people back out in the lanes. I mean, we were bowling, but with the restrictions in place there really had not been much opportunity to get out and compete. I mean, there was an occasional no-tap tournament, but much else. I was also annoyed with stories of people bowling tournaments and being left with the question of "Where did all the money go?", not to mention people telling me about winning tournaments and still losing money. That's not okay. Sooo...we decided to not only coordinate teams for tournaments, but organize and sponsor tournaments as well to give bowlers the opportunity to compete in events that are fun and fair for everyone.
A big part of our vision is also to bring the bowling community together. Bowling, unlike a lot of other sports still has organizations within the USBC that are focused on specific groups of people based on ethnicity or sexual orientation. It makes me sad that organizations such as these have ever been necessary, but that's the unfortunate reality in this country. So, in addition to fairness, transparency and integrity, our goal is to foster inclusion by making EVERYONE feel welcome, respected and safe regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
