Rainbow Bowling League is Community Link's newest project. It started in October 2007 as a way of keeping recreational activities going in the fall and winter, when it's too cold for our Queer Volleyball games outside.

Additionally, since 2010 we decided to hold RBL's Summer Edition as an alternative to volleyball. Now you can choose between the two! And if you don't want to give up on volleyball, come bowling in the fall and winter!

The league is always looking for players! We play weekly on Thursdays at 7pm at AMF Sierra Lanes, 6450 N Blackstone Ave in Fresno. Games cost $14 a week.

The next Summer League will start on May 15, 2014 and will end some time in August, 2014.

We need players who can commit to being there every week as well as substitute players for teams. Please call Rich at the number above if you're interested.

Bowl-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser, which started in 2000. We reserve several lanes on third Sunday in August just for teams from our LGBT community and have a big party with themes such as "Beach Party", "Wig Out!" and "Halloween". There's a big raffle, costumes, trophies and surprises! Since it's a fundraiser for Community Link, teams are asked to donate a minimum amount of money to participate.

While teams are almost always local to Fresno, we were thrilled to have Visalia Rainbowlers send a large team in 2008, and the Visalia Lions Pride Club even more bowlers in 2010!
