Your Fall League is Forming Now?

The many benefits of league bowling

"For those of you out there who have never bowled in an organized bowling league, you may have wondered what it would be like to do so. You may have questions about what a league really is and how you would benefit from the experience if you joined one. The simple answer is that league bowling is a group of people getting together to bowl on a competitive basis. League bowlers consist of people of all age groups, all walks of life, and all levels of athletic skills.

Leagues are organized with various numbers of teams consisting of all men, all women, or a combination. These leagues meet on a regularly scheduled basis, normally once a week, and bowlers compete against each other as teams. Some compete for prize money, some for trophies, but all of them compete for the fun of bowling.

More often than not, league bowling is an equal form of competition because of its handicap system. A less talented or inexperienced bowler can compete with a bowler of more experience and skill and still have a chance to win. League bowling is an inexpensive night out, giving you a chance to make new friends, compete on an equal basis and be assured that you will have lanes to bowl on each week at a time that is suitable to your own personal schedule.

To put it simply, in relationship to any other competitive athletic event, league bowling is the best buy in town and you don't have to worry about getting rained out.

Bowling's popularity

According the United States Bowling Congress, bowling is the No. 1 participatory sport in America with over 66 million people bowling at least once in leagues or open bowling every year. It is one of the most popular sports in the world. Bowling's popularity is evident in Prince William County with every bowling center hosting league play every night of the week and some hosting leagues in the daytime.

One of the reasons for bowling's popularity is its adaptability. Children and adults of nearly every ability level can participate, and it can be enjoyed as leisure, recreational and social activity or as a com-petitive opportunity.

Almost anyone can bowl. That is why no other sport can match the diversity of participants in this sport. Some of the benefits of bowling include its easy accessibility to facilities, equipment and instruction. You can practice anytime or bowl in a league for competition.

Bowling is a lifetime fitness sport which contributes to balance, coordination and motor skills. The game is able to fill the needs of so many people because above all, it is simple to play. The rules are not complex and the basics of how to roll the ball are quickly learned. How well you do and how high you can score is another matter".

Bowling for Senior Citizens--It's Right Up Their Alley

Don't be a "Couch Potato"!

Been out of the sport of bowling for awhile? Considering participation with friends you haven't seen in a long time, or a group once or twice a week? That's Great!!! You're never too old to bowl and "winning never gets old." Age is not a detriment to being able to bowl, particularly if you can adjust your game to what's happening or what has happened to your body. Like everything that exists in life, the older we get the more difficult some things are to achieve. Bowling can be taken up and enjoyed even at 65 or 70 years of age, and remember, our oldest active league bowler passed away at 106 years young.

Bowling the sport of everyone. Yes, Bowling. The sport of individual achievement and competitiveness, used by some for recreation, socializing, exercise and a method of stress relief.

Happy Hump Day

Wednesday, or the hump of the week. The absolute BEST day of the week, the day of maximum hope that maybe, you might make it out of this week alive. A particularly good hump day can last you the rest of the week, and by Doomday morning (Monday) you survive by anticipating hump day. Nothing goes wrong on hump day

Most other days can be defined by hump day. Tuesday is the day before hump day. Thursday is one day after hump day. Except Friday is WOOOH!!! FREEDOM!!! Day, Saturday is Mostly Hungover day, and Sunday is PreDoom day.

Bowl-A-Roll Lanes Newest Miilionaire

Congratulations to Rochester's newest millionaire.

One of our many local neighbor's daily ritual includes stopping by Bowl-A-Roll Lanes for dinner   According to our patron he is "in love" with our fresh Angus Cheeseburg combo platter.  His love affair" resulted in purchasing a Instant Lottery ticket.  Lo and behold, after scratching the ticket Rochester had a new millionaire.  Congratulations!!!!!

D.A.R.E.. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)


Bowl-A-Roll Lanes is proud to announce the return of the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” program for summer 2013!  Last year over 50,000 students bowled over 75,000 free games during the summer program.  "Say No To Drugs, Say Yes To Bowling" is a healthy, wholesome program for students of all ages that will give them a free activity all summer long at our family-friendly bowling center.

Here’s how it works...
It’s very simple. We will give each student a “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” card. The card entitles your child to ONE FREE GAME OF BOWLING (including rental shoes) EVERY DAY during the summer (May 1st through August 31st). That’s it. There is nothing to buy and very few restrictions. Cards are good seven days a week whenever lanes are available until 9:00 p.m. Students need only to present their card when they come to the bowling center and they may bowl ONE GAME FREE.  Any additional games will be charged at the special “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” rate ($1.00).

The first time the student uses their card, we will register them for our free Birthday Club and “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” Club. “Club” members will be eligible for prize drawings and will be invited to participate in many exciting group events and activities.

Say No to Drugs...
In addition to the free bowling feature of the program, we will also periodically host special Law Enforcement safety awareness presentations.   Club members will be informed of any scheduled events of this nature.

Bowling — a lifetime sport...
Bowling is the perfect sport. Everyone can play it and no one sits the bench. Size and strength are not a factor. We have bumper bowling for children as young as two years and facilities for disabled bowlers. Bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. We will also be offering free bowling instruction to our kids.

Bowling — a wonderful group activity...
Bowling is a great group activity. We encourage students and youth leaders to participate in the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” program as a group function. We will be happy to reserve lanes for your group or organization’s party or fundraiser.

We look forward to seeing you soon...
Our staff is eagerly awaiting your first visit. Please take a moment to introduce yourself when you get here. We pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service and attention to customer satisfaction. We’ll see you soon.  For more information please visit our website at or call Bill at 585-427-7250.
