Throw­ing strikes, in­doors or out, is a new game here for all ages. Bowl­ing grows as a lo­cal sport af­ter sev­eral bowl­ing al­leys sprout up in Er­bil and other cities over the past couple of years.

The sport of bowl­ing be­gan to flour­ish in the Re­gion when sev­eral big malls and pub­lic parks were built af­ter 2003. Al­though the sport is not played aca­dem­i­cally so far in the re­gion and there is no bowl­ing as­so­ci­a­tion to form teams and or­ga­nize tour­na­ments, there are still many avid fans and play­ers in the Re­gion.
