Get to Know the GCU Bowling Team

The women’s bowling team at Grand Canyon University continues to grow and advance in the world of college bowling. It has tripled in size over the past two years and takes pride in welcoming new talented players. The team enjoys a nurturing environment for students to grow in skill on the team and as people in the community. It allows players to compete at the highest level, developing their talents and strategies as athletes. The GCU bowling team provides an exciting place for students to become part of a team with others who share a passion for the game.

The GCU bowling team competes as a club program in United States Bowling Congress (USBC) collegiate events in Arizona, California, Nevada and other states. The team competes for two national titles each year. For the first time in 2016, GCU bowling qualified for the postseason. In 2017, the team made its first club national championship appearance. While the bowling team is relatively new, it has won two tournaments and is working hard to move up the collegiate bowling ranks as it continues to develop.
