Not sure exactly what you mean. Are you checking about the co-pay by parents as it is a niche sport?

I believe the school do subsidize some of these niche sports don't they?
So in general, what is the range that parents pay for their kid to take up the sports?

Personally, I feel it is expensive. parents will have to co-pay about 200-300.

Gear required : shoes, bag and balls...

Not sure how old is your child...normally school starts them at Pri 3 and use about 8 pound ball. You can get the set at $160 - $180 (A pair of shoes, 1 ball and a trolley bag). As they move into P4 or more professional like being selected for school team, they will need a better ball as strike ball range from 150- 300 and have to customise drilling to fit the fingers (separate costing) and a normal ball to pick spare.

Yearly (sometimes half-yearly) change of balls (the whole sets) to increase the weight. Shoes (feet grow) and miscellaneous kits etc. School team members will normally have at least 2-3 strike balls.

Some may be selected to take the COE course which is more than 1K with training twice a week (not very sure)

Thanks for the info.

Will keep it in view, esp. since DC is interested in bowling.
