The number of bowling leagues across the country has decreased, but not at Diversey River Bowl in Logan Square.  The center is packed with leagues every night of the week except Fridays and Saturdays, when people come in to participate in Rock N’ Bowl.

 Chicago also happens to be home to one of the best collegiate bowling teams in the country with the men’s and women’s bowling teams at Robert Morris University-Illinois.

In this episode of Medill Newsmakers we dive in and see why Chicago has become such a popular place for bowling.
