Students Can Bowl One Free Game a Day This Summer at Brunswick

Lake Forest, Ill. (May 11, 2011)-This summer kids can bowl one free game a day at any of the 93 Brunswick Zone and Brunswick Zone XL centers across the country and in Canada.


Each day from June 1 through Aug. 31, students age 18 and younger can hit the lanes and bowl a free game whenever lanes are available. Students simply need a Student Ball Pass from Brunswick, which can be picked up at any Brunswick center or downloaded from the Brunswick Bonus Zone, Shoe rental is not included.


"Students work hard during the school year, and offering free bowling games is our way to recognize those efforts," said Jim Fox, president - Brunswick Bowling Retail. "Bowling is a great way to avoid the summer heat and have fun with friends or family. It doesn't require a lot of planning, and, best of all, it can't be ruined by the weather."


Many students are already prepared to claim their free games as more than 2 million passes have been distributed through local schools that teamed up with Brunswick this spring to help hand passes out.


The free Student Ball Pass summer promotion is just one way Brunswick recognizes students. Students can also earn a free game for every "A" on their current report card through Brunswick's Making the Grade program. And, a free Family Funtastic Value Package, including two hours of free bowling for up to six people, shoe rental and a pitcher of pop, awaits students with perfect attendance. Finally, each spring, Brunswick awards more than $45,000 in college scholarships to winners of its All-Star Varsity Bowling Tournaments.
