Free Summer Bowling for Kids

Information About Free Bowling Programs for Summer 2012


During early spring each year many of the bowling centers around the U.S. open up registration for free bowling for children during the summer months.

You can keep on top of the dates by joining the email groups and/or following the centers on Facebook when applicable.
