Reportage: VŠE Alumni Bowling 14 February

On 14 February 2024, the second year of the popular VŠE Alumni Bowling organized by the VŠE Alumni Centre took place. The event was held at the Xbowling Žižkov premises and was dedicated to the alumni of Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral studies. During the evening, almost 100 former VŠE students gathered to reconnect, share their professional and personal experiences and enjoy bowling together. The event was free of charge for the VŠE alumni.

Registration of the participants was accomplished in advance via an online form, allowing the organizers to create balanced teams, which enhanced the networking future of the event. Participants could showcase their bowling skills while making new professional contacts. The whole evening was full of fun, competition and a friendly atmosphere. In addition to six bowling lanes, the Xbowling Žižkov also includes a restaurant with a bar where players can order drinks and snacks throughout the evening.

A professional photographer was present throughout the event, and audiovisual recordings were also made. The photos were sent to the participants after the event and will be used for promotional purposes as well. The alumni were informed in advance and also consented to take these recordings through registration.

The alumni have been gathering since 6 pm, and the first game started at 6:30 pm with a welcome speech by Ing. Tereza Jiříková, Head of the VŠE Alumni Centre. Four rounds in 6 rows were played during the evening (in a total of 24 groups of players), with the last game starting at 21:30. After each round, the top three players were announced and awarded a trophy, a bottle of champagne and chocolates. At the very end of the evening, the Director of Alumni & Corporate Relations, Ing. Mgr. Martin Rey, thanked all participants and invited them to the upcoming planned events.

The entire team of the VŠE Alumni Centre would like to thank all the alumni for their active participation and the positive energy they brought to the event. We believe that the second edition of the VŠE Alumni Bowling also contributed to strengthening the community of former Prague University of Economics and Business students and that the participants enjoyed the evening.
