Located in urban, multiracial neighborhoods. Clubs were available in many urban neighborhoods and often were owned by minority persons. As a result of the pins being readily available very quickly became integrated. Bowling gave different people an outlet to participate with less fear of racial discrimination from those found in other sports. Bowling was also less publicized, making it easier for minorities to rise to fame and success.
