Best Bowling Slogans
Here are our expert panel’s top ten best bowling slogans.
1.) Try it. You’ll strike it. Your friend’s name doesn’t have to be Mikey to enjoy this funny bowling slogan.
2.) Livin’ on a spare. I think we can all acknowledge that Bon Jovi nailed the song “Livin’ on a Prayer.” A little borrowed interest and play-on words make for an interesting slogan.
3.) If you don’t get a strike, spare me. Sound advice for any bowler; just saying.
4.) Bowling: That’s How I Roll! I enjoy the love of the game expressed in this little bowling saying.
5.) Bowling is a sport for people who have the talent to spare (but you shouldn’t give up on it). This diss starts so nicely. But then the second sentence lowers the boom. Calling competitors talentless isn’t exactly following the Dale Carnegie playbook.
6.) I make pins fall. What’s your superpower? Bowling, like most endeavors, is all about confidence. I think this slogan addresses that in spades.
7.) I’m new at this; what’s your excuse? Your grace period as a newcomer will end soon if you speak like this. But it’s all about the laughs.
8.) Split happens. I think we all know this reference. Let’s leave it at that.
Good Bowling Expressions
9.) Call us “Butter” cause we are on a roll. You gotta love how the word “roll” works both ways.
10.) Bowling: You can’t beat the 85 cents shoes. There is something iconic about bowling shoes and the rental fees. Upon check-in, my friend used the attendant, “Two questions. First, do you have size 12 shoes? And, what is the scoring record at this alley for three games?” (NOTE: He never broke 150.)
