It’s time to sign up for the Kids Bowl Free program! My kids and I used to do this every summer and we LOVED it! There are so many times during the long summer break when it rains or it’s just too stinkin’ hot to do anything outside. Those are the days you can head to the bowling alley. Often, I just let the kids bowl while I caught up on my summer reading. It was bliss!!!  My local bowling alley has lots of seating, bumpers for kids bowling, clean restrooms and a reasonably priced snack bar. Make sure you check out your own local place before signing up. But honestly, it’s kind of a ‘no lose’ situation.  Even if you never go, it’s free. So you haven’t lost anything except the short time it takes to register.

The program gets you two free games for each registered child every day all summer long. Shoe rental is not included but that’s generally not a huge cost.

Each location has specific times and days that this promotion is valid. Look for those on the sign up page or in a follow up email. Kids Bowl Free also offers an option where you can purchase unlimited summer bowling for up to 4 adults for a reduced fee. Registration is usually open to kids under age 15 but this limit may vary by location so make sure to double check when you sign up.

Some locations also offer school break specials to enrolled kids after the summer is over. ¬†Keep an eye out for those special deals and you may be able to entertain your kids all year round ūüôā

Here are the participating Middle Tennessee Locations (Click on the name to get to the registration page.)

Due to COVID-19, each center will be following county and state guidelines this summer for reopening and operations. Please call your specific bowling center before heading out to make sure they are open for Kids Bowl Free.
