Welcome to Funlovers.

We're a friendly group of bowlers that meets every week to bowl and socialize. This year we are excited to announce our move to a new house and new format! Funlovers will now bowl Tuesday nights at Keystone Lanes in Norwalk. We are also returning to four-person line-ups and will now travel to Laughlin at the end of the league!

Our next league beings this fall. Please contact us now if you are interested in joining.

Interested? Here's more.

Who are we?

Funlovers welcomes you! Our history as the longest running LGBT bowling group in Southern California is complimented by our primary goal to provide a fun and safe environment for all of our members alike. Our bowlers represent a wide range of experience, but our handicap scoring system ensures that everyone, regardless of skill level, can be competitive, and have a great experience at the same time.

Our rich history of involvement in the LGBT community includes our membership in IGBO. Many of our bowlers serve on the organizing committee for the California Spring Classic bowling tournament.

How much does it cost?

First, you need to be a member of USBC, the national organization that governs the sport of bowling. USBC dues are $25/year including state and local chapter fees.

Beyond that, it costs $30/week to participate which includes your bowling, shoes and ball. A one-time $10 administrative fee that includes league expenses and the IGBO Membership fee is also due at the beginning of the season. It is your responsibility to travel to Laughlin at the end of the season. Your hotel and bowling lineage expenses are covered for the trip.* (please see rules for specifics about what is and is not provided)

Where do we bowl?

All bowling is at Keystone Lanes, located at the very east of Los Angeles County in Norwalk on Imperial Highway close to where it crosses the Santa Ana 5 Freeway.

Keystone Lanes is a full-service 48-lane bowling center with several food options inside a mini food court, a full lounge and bar, and a comprehensive pro shop should you wish to purchase equipment and supplies. The facility even includes a billiard room to offer alternative fun in addition to bowling. There is ample free parking at the bowling center. There are also several restaurants and bars nearby for additional options before or after bowling.

Here’s more answers to your questions.

Let's get to the details, but only if you want to.

  • Q: How many people are on each team. What if I don't have enough friends to bring for a team?
  • A: There are four bowlers to a team. Don't worry if you don't know two or three other people who want to bowl; just come to the organizational meeting on the first night of bowling. There are usually single bowlers who are looking for a team and we will be glad to help match you up. It's a great chance to get to meet other bowlers the very first night!
  •  
  • Q: Do I have to bowl every week during the session?
  • A: You are allowed to miss bowling, however, you are financially responsible for any week you miss when you return. You can ask another sanctioned bowler (USBC member) to bowl for you (except during special events as noted in the rules) to prevent your team from having to bowl with less than a full team.
  •  
  • Q: What is USBC and why do I have to join?
  • A: USBC (United States Bowling Congress) is the governing body in the United States for the sport of bowling. By sanctioning our league (requiring everyone to be a member) we are able to offer bowlers all of the benefits of the organization. Besides awards for various personal accomplishments, members can take advantage of bowling publications, tournament eligibility and merchant discounts.
  •  
  • Q: How can I pay my league fees every week?
  • A: You may pay in cash or with a credit card.
  •  
  • Q: Do you have established rules for the league?
  • A: Yes. As we are a USBC league, we are governed by USBC rules. In conjunction with those rules, we have rules specific to our league. You can view the current league rules at anytime by going to www.funlovers.com/rules.
  •  
  • Q: How do I find out how my team is bowling relative to other teams in the league?
  • A: League Standing Sheets are published weekly by Keystone Lanes and are available by the front door as you enter the bowling center. You may also ask the front desk for a copy or check League Secretary online or current or historical standings.
  •  
  • Q: What is IGBO?
  • A: IGBO is an international organization whose goal is to promote the sport of bowling to the LGBT community worldwide. Starting from humble beginnings, it has grown to become the largest international LGBT sports organization in the world today.
