Sign Up for Kids Bowl Free in Middle Tennessee

STRIKE! Kids 15 and younger can enjoy free bowling every day this summer.

It’s time to sign up for the Kids Bowl Free program!

This annual summer program allows kids to bowl two free games every day between the designated dates (end dates vary by bowling alley). Shoe rental is not included but that’s generally not a huge cost.

This program allows the bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure and fun way for kids to spend time this summer. Passes are valid during certain times due to league play. Please call your location ahead of time to make sure they have lanes available. However, with most places, they do not allow reservations. Lanes are first come, first served.

Kids Bowl Free also offers an option where you can purchase unlimited summer bowling for up to 4 adults for a reduced fee. Registration is usually open to kids under age 15 but this limit may vary by location so make sure to double check when you sign up. Some locations also offer school break specials to enrolled kids after the summer is over.  Keep an eye out for those special deals and you may be able to entertain your kids all year round.

Check out all the participating Middle TN locations below.
