Ten Pin Bowling

Posted by: Anna Wings Exeter Devon Posts: 66

My children enjoy ten pin bowling, but I find it quite expensive. I'm interested to know of other parent's experience. Do alleys near you offer discounts for families etc. Even paying for an hour for a family of four works out expensive if you like to go often. I would also like to see more lighter balls available for children. Most of the alleys we have been to only seem to have one or at most two lightweight balls.

The alleys near me have different offers. One allows you to play a game for something like £2 on a Monday and a Wednesday. This is only available during term time. So those days are obviously good for playing. Another alley has a children's club on a Saturday morning club. This give children two hours bowling for £5. You can also find off peak deals at some lanes. It can be expensive though.

I agree with your point about the balls. For little ones who no longer wish to use the ramp a six pound ball is certainly heavy enough, but these seem to be few and far between.
