Purdue Women's Bowling League


This is a women's handicap league.

Teams consist of 3 members (with an optional 4th or 5th as an alternate), with a maximum of 10 teams.

Our bowling season is 30 weeks.

We bowl on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM at the Union Rack and Roll in the basement of the Purdue Memorial Union, West Lafayette campus.

The 2017-2018 season started with an organizational meeting on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, in the Purdue Memorial Union, Room 258 (Purdue WL campus).

The first night of bowling was Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

We don't bowl the day before Thanksgiving (November 22), or the weeks of Christmas or New Year's (December 27 and January 3).  

Starting with the 2014-2015 season, we have added one makeup day (if needed) to the end of the schedule. For the 2017-18 season, the last night of bowling will be either April 11 (no make-up dates).


We typically have a carry-in buffet in December and our awards banquet in April. This season's awards banquet will be on April 18, 2018.

For the past several seasons we have held a charity fundraiser in February or March. The 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons was for Bowl for the Cure. The 2011-12, 2012-13 seasons were for the Purdue Cancer Center, and in 2013-14 and 2014-2015 we raised funds for the National Kidney Foundation (in honor of one of our members).

In our 2015-2016 season our fundraiser was for Natalie's Second Chance (no kill dog shelter); that season we also raised funds for the American Cancer Society in memory of our friend and former leaguemate, Karen Heide. During 2016-2017 season, the Loving Heart Animal Shelter in Lafayette received our donations.

Another charity our league sponsors is Food Finders of Lafayette.

For the 2017-2018 season, our charity was National Kidney Foundation in memory of Antoaneta Curis (one of our former members).
