If you’re 55 or older and love to bowl, joining a senior league at McHenry Bowl is a fantastic option that can help you have fun and get exercise while building new friendships.

Here are some of the many advantages you enjoy as a participant in a senior league:

    Senior league participants are automatically members of our Golden Bowlers Club, which allows you to bowl practice games weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon for just $2 per game. Golden Bowler shirts are available for $25.00 each. 

    For an additional $5.00, we will put your name on the front pocket.

      Seniors at McHenry Bowl enjoy the exciting challenge of our 55 and older No-Tap Tournaments every other Friday. These handicapped tournaments with optional side pots cost $12, while side pots are $3 each. You don't need to have an average to participate but if you do have one let us know.


     Bowling is a great way to stay fit. Every time you bowl you use about 140 different muscles and burn over 450 calories per hour!

New Year's Eve Celebration

Every December 31, McHenry Bowl hosts a daytime New Year's Eve Celebration for our Seniors and their guests.

The celebration starts with a delicious buffet lunch and background music, followed by three games of No-Tap bowling with colored pin money shots and a chance to bowl for $100.00! 

The party continues until we ring in the New Year as it turns over in Paris, France at 3 p.m.!

Champagne and sparkling cider will be served in souvenir champagne glasses. This celebration gives seniors a safe, fun way to bring in the New Year and still be home early.

Reservations and prepayment are mandatory a week prior to New Year’s Eve. Discounts are available for Golden Bowlers Club members.
