Meet the GCU Bowling Team

The men’s bowling program is rapidly expanding and becoming more successful in the collegiate bowling world. Over the past two years, it has tripled in size and welcomed many new skilled players. The GCU bowling team creates a supportive environment for bowlers to learn about the game, develop their skills and compete at the highest level. Men’s college bowling provides an outlet for GCU students to join a team of peers who share their passion and enthusiasm for competitive bowling. Players are able to work as a team and individually to improve their skills.

The men compete in United States Bowling Congress (USBC) collegiate events in Arizona, California, Nevada and other states. A club designation allows the team to compete for two national titles each year. The GCU bowling team made the postseason for the first time in 2016 and made its first club national championship appearance in 2017. The team, while still in its early stages, has captured two tournament titles and plans to continue to move up the collegiate bowling ranks as it continues to grow.
