School is just around the corner for the kiddos (or has already started for some!), and that got us thinking about just how important it is to always expand your knowledge and master a new skill. But some of the best skills and most enjoyable learning experiences lie outside the classroom. If you’re thinking about learning something new or want your kids to develop a new skill in addition to all the things they’ll be studying in school, bowling could be the perfect solution! Therefore, we’re excited to announce our upcoming fall leagues!
We’ve been preparing all summer long to make this the best season yet! This summer, JB’s on 41’s lanes were completely refinished. Adjusted flat gutters, a new oil machine, and new kick plates rounded out the renovation. We hired scratch bowler and league expert Steph Anderson as operations manager. Most of all, expect quality, thanks to these upgrades! The new lanes will help you have better control in your throws. Experienced enhanced pin action and improved scoring conditions.
Enjoy a great selection of fun fall leagues for bowlers of every age and skill level at JB’s on 41. Bowling leagues include traditional ones, different scoring methods (like “9 Pin Tap”—nine or more on your 1st ball counts as a strike), and even different premiums. Some leagues have cash prizes, some have bowling balls, and other have fun licensed merchandise like NASCAR. So read below to find out which league will interest you the most but hurry because fall leagues start first week of September. That’s just a mere two weeks away!
First, let’s start with our new kids league! Starting September 10, kids receive coaching on the lanes and get to practice their new skills. Each week, lessons begin at 11 am and cost $9 per person weekly. This lower pricing covers the coaching and practicing, as well as a behind the scenes tour of JB’s on 41, prizes and other special kids league benefits! In addition, you will also receive a JB’s coupon book and an end of the season party! Especially noteworthy, no matter the age of your child, there will be a special team for them at JB’s with this sanctioned league:
Milwaukee Bumperz: Ages 4-8
Ten Pin Wizards: Ages 9-13
Phantom Strikers: Ages 14+
Let your kids pick up a new skill outside of the classroom this season and have fun while doing so!
Next: fan-favorite, sanctioned full season handicap starts soon. What is a handicap, you ask? A bowling handicap allows you to compete against other bowlers with varying levels of skill and ability with an equal chance of winning. That way, for $15 per person/week, everyone can bowl and have fun while doing so! And what would make a league like this even more fun? Prize money is awarded to the winners! To see which game day would work best for you, read about our sanctioned handicap leagues below:
Monday (starting September 12): 3 players per team; starts at 6:30 pm; league meeting 8/30 at 6:30 pm
Wednesday (starting September 7): 4 players per team; starts at 7 pm; league meeting 8/30 at 6:30 pm (update: spots filled!)

If any of these days interest you, make sure to sign up here on our website and attend the league meeting on August 30. Choose either Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or bowl on multiple days!
If you’re wanting to spend more time together or master a skill as a family, then this not sanctioned league is for you! Much like Rock’n Bowlers, kids inspire the fun! Starting September 11, you and your kiddos can play together every Sunday at 12:30 pm. For a 4 person team (2 adults and 2 kids), it only costs $45; and for a 2 person team (1 adult and 1 kid), it is $26. And there is an additional discount if one of the kids playing in the family league also plays for the Saturday kids league: It’s only $30 per 4 person team and only $22 per 2 person team!
