My now eight-year-old son Robbie is what you might call a quirky kid. He’s always marched to the beat of his own drum and for a long time that beat including a fascination with bowling. Beyond just wanting to have a bowling birthday party, Robbie would spend hours watching bowling tournaments on television. Lucky for Robbie, Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis is the host site of the Dick Weber PBA Playoffs in Indianapolis from now through Sunday, March 13.
On Saturday, March 12, adults and children can have the opportunity to bowl three games alongside some of the world’s best bowlers. Sessions will take place at noon, 3:00pm and 6:00pm. The cost is $75/adult and $55/junior and includes a PBA yearbook, photo and holder and a PBA certificate. Amateur adult bowlers will also compete for a $1,000 first place prize.
If you’d rather just watch the pros at work, spectator passes are available for Saturday for $10. On Sunday, March 13, ESPN will be in the house to tape the regional and conference finals. Spectator passes for Sunday range in price from $25 to $75.
High caliber professional bowling will return to Woodland Bowl on Sunday, April 17, when the venue will host the Lumber Liquidators PBA Playoff Championships, which will also be broadcast on ESPN.
Woodland Bowl is located 3421 E. 96th Street in Indianapolis.
