Lanetalk Rumble – a successful national forerunner
At the beginning of 2020, Lanetalk conducted a successful test of the Rumble concept in Sweden. The event was held during the spring when the Covid situation was closing down most of the countries. Sweden was one of the only countries that held open, but with many restrictions that put a limit to this test. Here is some key takeaways from the event:
  • There were 103 centers and 1400 bowlers that took part in the event
  • The average center in Sweden has 12 lanes
  • On average, each center had 50 participants, playing 30 games each
  • On average, each center received 1,500 extra games (lane rentals) during the event
  • It was a highly appreciated event, both by the bowlers and the bowling centers
Thanks to our supporters
Cooperation overcomes all obstacles. We have the privilege of working with fantastic people at various companies in the sport of bowling. That is a big part of our success.
