If everything lines up just right, you might hear the thunder of 240 pins tumbling at Windsor Bowl. True, that's not entirely likely?every day, the 24-lane alley welcomes bowlers of any skill level, whether they?re gathering for a pickup game or participating in one of the men?s, women?s, or junior leagues. Automatic scoring tallies up all your strikes and spares, while optional bumper rails keep balls from rolling into the gutter or off to a safe house where strangers won?t fling them at pins.
Bowling?s not the only thing that draws families to Windsor Bowl. Billiards tables and a large-screen TV await visitors in the lounge. Between there and the caf?, there are plenty of spaces to gather for post-game brews, slices of pizza, or even healthy garden salads.
