New league bowlers get movie tickets, too


Ten Pins Down has added new leagues this year in an effort to bring bowling center customers to all of the amenities at the UltraStar Multi-tainment Center.

“The leagues will tie into different areas of the building,” said Dan Terry, direction of Entertainment Operations.

The Moms and Tots League, for instance, offers mothers and their tiny ones two games of bowling every Wednesday at 10 a.m. followed by an 11 a.m. movie. The cost is $18 for registration and $15 per day through April 22. The movie screening is part of the Parent Movie Morning in which volume is reduced, lights are dimmed and baby noise and diaper-changing are not only accepted but expected.

The Couples League offers pairs two games of bowling on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. “Then if they are over 21 they can go to the Star Class to watch a movie, and it’s included in the league package,” Terry said.

Couples participants pay $22 to register and $10 per day. It is tied in with the center’s Kids Club, so the kids have something to do while parents have a night out.

Terry said there will also be a guys night out and a girls night out. Men’s leagues are every Monday through April 20 at 6:30 p.m. The registration fee is $11, and per-day fee is $10. The cost is the same for the women’s league, every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. through April 22.

Terry said those leagues are relaxed and “more on the fun side.”

The new leagues are intended to encourage customers to explore all the entertainment inside UltraStar instead just focusing on just playing, or just eating or just seeing a movie.

***ADVERTISEMENT***Ten Pins Down also has the UltraFriends League for kids with special needs. They bowl every Wednesday through April 22. Participants can register for $12 and bowl three games for $3 per day.
The regular leagues, the UltraStrikers and the Average Joes, continue as well. Terry said those leagues started six months after the bowling center opened.

Ten Pins Down is a USBC-certified center.
