Free Summer Bowling Can Fill Kids’ Spare Time

Want to help your kids or grandkids have fun this summer? Enroll them in the Kids Bowl Free program sponsored by hundreds of bowling centers around the country.

Here’s how it works:

Adults can follow a link at the program’s website to register children age 15 and under at a participating bowling center (for some centers it’s 18 and under). They’ll receive an e-mail link showing them how to print weekly coupons good for two free games a day, at that center only, for the whole summer. The offer usually does not apply during evening hours, and shoe rentals are not included.

At the time of registration, the centers will also offer to sell a summer family pass that includes up to four adult family members. The family pass, which also must be printed weekly, starts at $23.95 at some centers. The one-time charge covers two daily games of bowling for each listed adult — and that could be you!
