Bowling Event Tips & Tricks

Based on many events we have hosted, we have the following recommendations for you on your bowling tournament or fundraiser event:

Plan on at least 2 hours total time frame for your event and bowling 2 games per person. (most non-bowlers will get tired at 3 games)

You can field up to 6 people per lane but that is tight for adults and makes the bowling go slower (not as much fun either) We strongly suggest 4-5 member teams

Bowling tournaments are much like golf tournaments, participants pay for team play, you can have lane sponsors and event sponsors.  We will hang signage for you if you want to do signs

Make it family friendly-we have bumper lanes if they want to enter as a family team too (we even have some “dinosaur ramps” for little ones

We can keep track of scoring- we just need to know ahead of time what your prizes will be for (places)

Make it fun!  Have a contest for best team outfit/bowling shirt, give 1-3rd place and LAST place prizes and some door prizes (but not too many) in between.  Have a “strike dance” competition, we can also set up a 7/10 split (think hole in one) for a larger prize

On the entry form we need complete information on each team member’s name and then we can enter it and get everything in our computers so that each team is up on the monitors and ready to go

Make your entry deadline at least a week prior to your event date.  This gives you time to fill empties, confirm with us on lane usage and get reminders out

Pricing will depend on how many lanes you will need to use- we can do a few lanes up to a full facility rental…again, 4-5 per lane (we have 32 lanes) and once you get to around 22-24 lanes you might as well rent the full facility and then we can close it down for your group
