Oakmont Lanes Bowling Club is a Bowling League consisting of four-person teams that utilize Nintendo Wii to simulate the experience of bowling without the weight of a bowling ball. Any resident who has the ability of holding a small remote control in their hand while swinging their arm as if they were rolling a bowling ball will be able to join.
Anyone interested in joining our Club, either as a team bowler or substitute, please call Terry at 538-9177 or Diane at 538-3365 or stop by the West Recreation Center on Tuesdays from 3-4:30pm to see us in action.
