Scholarships Awarded


The Anthracite Valley USBC recently awarded scholarships of $500.00 each to two students who participate in sanctioned bowling programs. Idle Hour Lanes, South Side Bowl, Valley Lanes & Wallenpaupack Bowling & Sports Center make up the Association's 1,700 members. Kiearra Saldi & Kyle Nolan won the scholarships. Each applicant was judged on academic & sports performance as well as their contributions to the community. Ms. Saldi attends Holy Cross High School and is entering her Senior year while Mr. Nolan will be in his Senior year at Wallenpaupack Area High School. The Anthracite Valley USBC also honored graduating Senior Greg Matyjevich with a special 300 Plaque after the West Scranton teen rolled a perfect 300 game during the 2017-18 at South Side Bowl.

Summer League Bowling

Bowling leagues are a great way to spend your spare time with friends, co-workers or family. Join as single, couple or team, or we will match you with players at your skill level. All leagues allow pre-bowling if you cannot make a week. Most leagues start in May. After you register you will be contacted with the exact start date.

In addition to our adult leagues be sure to register your child in our Wednesday morning 8 for 8 youth bowling club. Kids bowl for 8 weeks, 2 games each week and receive a bowling ball at the completion of the club! Click the youth link above for details!
