Aside from smooching on the back row at the cinema, bowling is up there as one of the classic first dates. Who wouldn’t enjoy all that ball handling and scoring? That’s why dating site DoingSomething has teamed up with Brooklyn Bowl to organise a massive date night.
‘The Big Brooklyn Bowl Date’ invites 600 of London’s singletons for an evening of bowling (obviously) and single mingling. To banish any inhibitions, attendees will get a Meantime beer on arrival, and then the tournament begins. There will be a winner-stays-on rule to encourage some flirty banter, and prizes include tickets to see Fun Lovin’ Criminals (potential second date sorted!).
In case you do strike it lucky, tickets also include £10 credit for a cab from app ‘Bounce’, so you can escort your date home for… err… coffee? If you don’t, then tickets also include a one month membership to DoingSomething.co.uk (normally £29).
If you’re keen to get bowled over, tickets are £12. It’s happening tomorrow, July 17, 7.30pm, at The O2, SE10 0DX.
