  • Games during Youth and Adult Leagues

    We are looking for some new games to play with our summer leagues, both Youth and Adult. We put a red pin in the setters, and if it comes up as the head pin and you can strike, you get a free game. With the Youth bowlers, we also have a wheel they can spin to get a free pizza for a certain lane, or the next game is 9-pin or 8-pin. we are wondering what some other centers do to make leagues more fun?

    Depending on how many lanes you have running it can get a little hectic. 36 lanes-We tried this during league and the counter staff was running around to the lanes every couple of minutes. You would be supprised how often that single pin will come up. sometimes multiple lanes at the same time. gave away 50 free games in 1 day.
    ...if you are ok with this than go for it. But depending on how many lanes will be running at the same time you might want to try something like throwing 2 colored pins in the machine and stipulating that the 2 colored pins have to be spot in either of the 1,2,3pin spots at the same time....or some other way of using 2 pins to lessen the occurrence of the free game shots.

      Good thing we're in the back, right? lol But we only do the colored pins for youth league, and open play. My GM was wondering more along the lines of games to play during youth leagues, just to make it more fun for the kids.
