Tuesday Social Bowling Group "Let The Good Times Roll"

Join us for lots of fun and laughs on Tuesday nights at 6:15 pm to check-in/pay/mingle then bowl from 6:30 pm until about 9:00 pm. We pay $10/week per person to bowl and Spare Time offers an optional deal where you can pay an additional $3 for 8 weeks (or $24 all at one time) and get a new bowling ball drilled to your finger specifications. This is a fantastic deal -- $24 for a customized ball! There are many alley balls, in different weights and finger sizes, available for use at no cost. Shoe rental is available for $4 as well. We started this group in the summer of 2013 and get new people from all age groups all the time. Skill is not important; a great sense of humor and willingness to have fun with terrific friends are the only requirements. So come join us for a great night out every Tuesday. We are a Social Bowling Group (non-league) so if you cannot make it on any given Tuesday night, that is okay! You don't have to pay for any night that you don't bowl. This is an all-ages, very welcoming group for both men and women. More information: http://sparetimeentertainment.com/manchester City Sports Grille has great pub grub & spirits. They serve while you bowl too!! This Meetup event repeats every Tuesday and is cross-posted with Meeting and Greeting in So.
