You have joined a bowling league, and I bet you are super excited to compete with other teams on the league, but there is just one problem: your team needs a name!
And it can’t just be “John’s team” or something boring like that; it has to have a nice ring to it, something to really catch people's attention.
Oftentimes, the team leader or manager will look towards the whole team when trying to decide between bowling team names; after all, everyone will be sporting the name on their team shirts, right? Right. So everyone rightfully should be included.
You can’t have a team called Pink Ladies when there is a guy or two on the team, and likewise you wouldn’t want a team name of Macho Men if there are ladies on the team. A little common sense goes a long way when brainstorming about bowling team names!
Brainstorming a Team Name
Here’s a few more tips to consider for choosing a team name:
- Think about your teammates’ personalities: Do they strike you as funny, outgoing, gangster, reserved, or dirty?
- Use bowling terms: Strike, spare, and split are total givens. How about kegler, turkey, and blowout to get you thinking more?
- Play on words: There is an abundance of bowling terms that are easy to twist around; I’m sure you can think of a few! With all of the balls flying around, it shouldn't be hard!
Even considering all of the above, choosing a name can still be a difficult process. Lucky for you, we have a list of awesome bowling team names to spare.
Whether you are looking for something clean, funny, or raunchy, you may find just what you are looking for!

Deciding on a Team Name
Found your name? That’s great!
Didn't see one you like? We told you it isn't easy!
There are a few more ways you and your team can come up with names together. Talking about things in other settings can help to provide some inspiration. Try these few things to help the names roll off your tongue:
- Talk about it over a game of bowling. Something might just slip out, and it won’t be anyone’s balls!
- Talk about it over dinner. It is said that the mind works more clearly when you are not hungry. Remember, everything is better with bacon. Even bowling team names.
- Talk about it over a drink or a few. We all know interesting things come out when alcohol is involved. Bottoms up!
When all the pins have been knocked down for the night, the beer stops drippin’ and the balls return no more, and you still haven’t figured out a name for the team, sleep on it. You might even find something inspiring in a dream. The Dream Team, Sleepers, Night Prowlers, you get it. Many good things come from a good night’s sleep, even if it’s just a clearer mind for the next day to figure out that name!
The perfect name will come to you, one way or another, perhaps even in the form of one of those out-of-nowhere phenomenons. Or should we call it a “PINomenon?” Okay, bad joke, but it might make for a great team name!
