Whether it is Oddballs, X-Men, Alley Cats or Pin Pals, choosing a team name for your bowling squad may be more difficult than just combining the first letters of each teammates’ name. There are other factors to take into account in order to reflect the true spirit of the team.
What is the overall personality of the group? Is it sassy, aggressive, skilled, fun, strategic or silly? The name should reflect the identity of the team. With a strong identity, a team will be united and effective. A good team name helps to project that identity.
The age of the group is an important factor to consider as well. The name should be age appropriate. It should not be too mature if the team is made up of teenagers or younger children.
Add Your Location
In order to make your name stand out from the rest, try adding your location to the name. For example, if you like the name “The Lions” and are from Leeds, try “The Leeds Lions” or if you are from Birmingham, you could try “The Birmingham Bandits.” Adding a location can spice up the name of your bowling team.
Ask for Help
If you are not sure what to call your team and could really use some more assistance, try reaching out to your virtual friends on social media. If there is one thing you can count on, it is that you will get a bunch of opinions and responses this way. Give a brief description of the identity of the team and ask for suggestions on names. You could even consider a competition where a gift is awarded if a submitted team name is chosen.
