We pride ourselves on providing the most inclusive recreational/sports activity around. Our center allows for full inclusion of people with any physical challenges-from simply being a tiny tot to those needing more specialized assistance.

Our bumper system allows the bowlers to specify ahead of time that one or more bowlers in the group need bumpers. Each time that person's turn comes up, the bumpers automatically raise, just for that person's turn. This is possible on EVERY lane, not just a few; so have fun…bowl together!

We also offer adaptive needs coaching. Our specially trained coaches excel at helping bowlers reach their full potential. We have ramps for aiding bowlers that aren’t able to throw the ball as well as other devices to ensure that everyone can play & compete!
