WINTER SPORTS

Anything that helps, benefits, uplifts, promotes, encourages and contributes to the welfare of others is good.

               TABLE TENNIS 

Our season starts around the end of September and ends around the first of May. We have anywhere from 4  to 10 players on any particular day.  Ages are 55 to 85 and we meet at the Bloomington Armory at 3300 W. 98th St.  at 9 AM on Tuesday & Thursday.  We play until we get tired.  This is a fairly aggressive sport and we work up a sweat, so dress comfortably and bring your table tennis paddle.  Play is very informal and is mostly doubles using the old rules of 21 points.  We vary partners often and try to keep the teams as evenly balanced as possible so that we can have fun regardless of skill level.  We usually play some singles when the session winds down.
For information call Andy Blaho, 651-454-2175



We have about 40 bowlers that meet at Southtown Bowl each Tuesday at 9:30 AM.  The current season is in progress and lasts 31 weeks.  We would like everyone to wear the green BAJ sport shirt, but it is not required.

We are looking for new bowlers. Whatever your average is, please join us.

On the 32nd week, we have a banquet. Last year it was at the KC Hall.
