English term or phrase: Hey! Let's go bowling!
I am trying to translate this phrase into as many languages as possible. More info at http://www.zoetek.com/bowling/

Afrikaans translation:Haai! Kom ons gaan speel kegelbal!
Explanation:
But that is the correct, formal translation.
It would probably sound like this:

Haai! Hoe lyk dit met 'n bietjie bowling?

or

Hi! Kom ons gaan bowl 'n bietjie!

Thanks for the reply. I went with the formal answer, because a distressing number of languages translate the world "bowling" as "bowling." Thus I tend to favor translations which avoid this. I have linked to your proz profile at http://www.zoetek.com/bowling/

If you would prefer a different link, just let me know.
