In September the new season of the weekly BCS Thursday Night Bowling League will kick off in the Scheveningen bowling alley. The league has expanded with new teams from the international community in The Hague.

Practical information: - Bowling starts at 19.00 hrs. - Three games will be played - Five people per team can play during the evening but ten people can be registered per team. So you can make a schedule of the five people who play each week - There is no bowling between Christmas and New Year or on any other public holidays - A maximum handicap of 60 (= bonus points) will be given to compensate the less experienced players. - The weekly fee is approx. €8.50 per person - In-house bowling balls and shoes are free of charge If you or your organisation would like to participate, please contact email@example.com. The deadline for enrolment for new teams is 18 August 2008.
I'm just about to settle down and watch the footy, and remembered what a couple of Dutch guys told me a few days ago, they love watching it on BBC, the commentary is much better and the Gary Linneker team make the watching even better. I think that just about sums up football in England, we are great at commentating but cannot get a decent team together. Lets see what happens in the World Cup........... Rog
Well I have to admit that I feel very let down that tonight as Euro 2008 kicks off to my dismay not one UK team has managed to qualify. I will be supporting Holland this year as I live and work here (and pay Dutch taxes!) As a Scotsman I feel very let down that we didn't qualify and usually support England (my wife is English) as a second best. My question is what happened? I thought England were supposed to have the best players in the world and British Football was once respected and admired. Should we blame Steve McClaren (who is going to be doing the commentry for the BBC this year) or is it that they get paid too much money!
Well it was a great match and I don't even like footie! I think I've fallen in love with the gorgeous guy who scored the first goal..although my hubbie says it was off side, what ever that means? Anyway we've had fire crackers and all sorts of celebrations tonight. Cheering and singing in the streets, a real carnival atmosphere. You know Holland could do it - Euro Champions 2008? Dutch football is alive and well after tonight. It can't help make me feel slightly uneasy at how bad this makes the lack of Englands' presence in this championship, shocking really.
I take it from all the Orange bunting, the flags, all the Orange products in the suoermarkets and shops that the Dutch take their football very seriously! Will the shops and restaurants close when Holland are playing? When do they play their first Euro match, I feel as I wiil have to adopt them as my team this time as England disgraced themselves! Eggy
Hello all! Does anyone know of any dance centers/schools in Rotterdam center or at least Rotterdam north of the Maas? I'm interested in centers that offer a variety of styles (modern, ballet, jazz, street dance, etc., not so much ballroom, salsa, etc.) for adults. Any info is appreciated!
My 15 year old son is looking for a place to buy brand new authentic Nike T90 Laser (Firm Ground) soccer boots (UK size 8) in the Hague. We've looked around centrum but found imitations of the boots. Anyone know where we can an authorised and authentic nike dealer? EMM
