ALTON — The Riverbender Community Center will celebrate National Bowling Day 6-10 p.m. Friday with a Wii bowling tournament for middle school youths during Open Play. The first 50 youths with a paid admission will receive a free game coupon from Bowl Haven Lanes, 3003 Washington Ave., Alton.

“National Bowling Day is actually celebrated on the second Saturday in August each year,” said RBCC Executive Director Jeff Allsman. “But the celebration is usually stretched through the weekend. We’re hoping to help kick off a great weekend of bowling.”

Allsman said any middle school student can participate in the RBCC Wii Open tournament. There is no cost to compete; cost for admission to Open Play is $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers. All of the regular features of Open Play will be available Friday.


The tournament winner will receive a trophy and have his or her name inscribed on a regulation bowling pin that will be displayed at the center, Allsman said. Depending on the number of participants, bowlers may roll one game with the highest overall score capturing the trophy or they may roll multiple games in a bracket format.

Preregistration is not needed. Middle school students can just come down to the center for the regular features of Open Play. The tournament will start about 7:30 p.m.

Through Sept. 2, Bowl Haven Lanes will let kids roll two free games of bowling each day. Participants are encouraged to call 618-465-2695 for lane availability or visit bowlhavenlanes.com.
