No pins left standing at the second Economics Bowling Night

Over 140 Economics students from all years demonstrated that bowling was right up their alley during an evening at Tenpin in Leamington Spa.

Following excellent feedback from the last year's bowling event, we organised our second Tenpin Bowling night on Tuesday 30 October 2018, with undergraduate Economics students from different years attending and getting involved along with members of staff from the Department.

With the brightly lit lanes, students and staff swapped their regular trainers and shoes for bowling shoes to see if it would be a strike or a gutter ball. Teams were formed on the night with a good consistency between students and staff. The evening provided a relaxed atmosphere to meet one another, share their experiences whilst enjoying knocking down a row of bowling pins.

Food and drink was available to purchase throughout the evening with 50% off. The event was a success and was one of the ways in which we responsed to feedback for more social and sporting events with integration across years.

It was great to see so many familiar and new faces across the department. My friend loved the event so much that she stayed until midnight, despite getting up at 4am for an assessment centre the next morning! My highlight was coming joint with Jeremy but I’ll definitely be sticking to a future career in economics
