Bowling is coming back in China

In 1990's there was big boom of bowling in China. Over 20,000 lanes were built in less than 5 years. But unfortunately it was followed by a 10 years closing of centers and very few new centers were built during this period.

You know, its hell when you're sick and when you lose your voice like I did this past week, it's hell especially if you are a marketer.
