Idle Hour Lanes takes great pride in offering a clean and family friendly facility to the community. We hope you'll enjoy the great lifelong sport of BOWLING with family and friends!

All leagues are handicapped. The lower average bowler gets pins so they can compete with the higher average bowler. Most leagues allow pre-bowling. If you cannot be here on the night of your league, you can come in some time before your league bowls and your scores will count for the night of your league.
