As an affiliate of the BPAA—a non-profit organization established in 1932 that guides more than 3,300 American bowling centers toward striking and sparing success—the BPA of North Jersey helps bowlers keep their pin-killing skills sharp. With today’s deal, up to five keglers can kick off their everyday soles, slip into a pair of bowling shoes, and flaunt their bowlballing skills for a full two hours of friendly competition. As players heave their hefty orbs down the smooth, synthetic lanes to make sure the pinsetters stay busy, automated scoreboards keep track of every pin that falls in the line of duty.
Each alley offers different amenities, ranging from the newly renovated snack and cocktail bar at Jersey Lanes to the Pro Shop at Rockaway Lanes; check each location's site for more details.

Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey
Under the umbrella of The Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey, an eclectic group of alleys work together to fill the region with the thunder of scattering pins. At most of Bowling Proprietors' bowling centers, bowlers keep track of pummeled pins with automatic scoring, and bumpers, which arrive at the call of a button, keep balls on course without filling the gutters with retired VCRs. Snack bars at some locations bolster ravenous bowlers, and game rooms in select centers keep hand-eye coordination in peak condition. Free WiFi is available in some centers so that winners can exercise bragging rights.
