Which grammar makes more sense?

1. I’ve been playing bowling for two years now.

2. I’ve been going bowling for two years now.

It’s just very confusing to me what verb I should use for bowling. Is it “play” or “go?”

    Normally for games, you would use "playing," but not in this case. The phrase used for bowling is "to go bowling." You don't "play bowling." 

    If you're trying to say that you often go bowling, "I've been going bowling" makes sense.However, if someone plays competitively and considers themselves a "bowler," they might say "I've been bowling for two years."That's nuance though--either "I've been going bowling" or "I've been bowling" are equally correct.

    I would use "going", or I would just say, " I have been bowling for two years."

    The words "playing" and "going" are really not needed.
