Ottawa Footy Sevens are delighted to announce our first ever “Footy-Bowl”, league, combining everything you love about soccer and bowling into one great cross-sport experience. This innovative new league has been inspired by the fantastic Messi vs Xavi 10-pin bowling commercial and the kids’ playground sport of kickball.
With so many of our spring leagues selling out so quickly, we’ve been searching for an innovative solution for the teams that missed out on a spot in their favourite leagues. Our good friends at McCarthy Lanes, Ottawa’s premier 10-pin bowling centre, have stepped in to partner with us on something unique. Replacing the bowling ball with a futsal and hands with feet will bring a fun new twist to everyone’s favourite sporting pastimes. Every player on the team gets a chance to be a “striker”, shooting for strikes rather than goals and it will be the one time that no one will mind being a “turkey” on the footy field (or lane!).
Go on: channel your inner Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, Roy Munson or Ernie “Big Ern” McCraken * and take your footy game to a different level this summer!
