Wamesit Lanes Sales Director Loretta Ryan and Marketing Director Mark Calandrello show off the certificate presented by Bowling Business Builders International to Wamesit Lanes for having the most signups in Massachusetts for the Kids Bowl Free program in 2017.
You might want to ask yourself, "Could 9,576 kids really be wrong?"
That's how many young people took part in "Kids Bowl Free" at Wamesit last year, more than any other bowling facility in Massachusetts. Participants were from communities throughout the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire.
Wamesit Lanes officials were honored for their No. 1 ranking with a certificate from Bowling Business Builders International. The program is sponsored by Brunswick.
"We're so proud of this (honor)," said Loretta Ryan, director of sales for Wamesit Lanes. "It was great seeing so many families here last summer. And we want to get even more kids signed up this year."
Wamesit Lanes kicked off the "2018 Kids Bowl Free" signup period on March 20. Signing up for the program is free and open to kids aged 15-under. Free bowling begins May 18 and runs through Sept. 1.
With membership in the program, a child gets to bowl two free games each day, Sunday through Friday. (There are certain blackout dates during the course of the promotion. Log onto www.kidsbowlfree/wamesit for terms and conditions).
"This is great for families. It gives the kids something fun to do for free. And if the parents buy a family pass ($30), everyone in the family can bowl all summer for free," said Ryan. "It's great because we don't depend on the weather. If the weather is bad or it's too hot and the kids want a place to go they can come here."
The program is especially good for families on a budget, looking for fun activities for their kids through the summer months that won't break the bank.
Registration for "Kids Bowl Free" is quick and easy and can be done in person at Wamesit Lanes, 434 Main St., Tewksbury or online at www.kidsbowlfree/wamesit .
