New owners reenergize bowling alley

As new owners of Bay Lanes Bowling Center in Bay Village, my husband, Mark, and I are working hard to create a fun, family-friendly atmosphere where kids, teens and adults can come bowl, eat and have loads of fun at extremely affordable prices. 
After years working in college admissions, Mark decided to leave his former position and take over Bay Lanes to fulfill his dream of owning his own business while still working with kids and families.
The new “Summer Kids Club” program is now underway, where kids are enjoying an eight-week program that includes two hours of weekly one-on-one instruction on the FUNdamentals of bowling, lunch and a Bay Lanes Kids Club T-shirt. Mark personally coaches the kids and promotes an "everyone is a winner" attitude. All kids will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
Recently voted Cleveland Magazine's 2010 Winner for "Best of The West Birthday Party Place," Bay Lanes is also becoming known for their great parties. We welcome all kinds of groups and “kids of all ages” to join in the fun. To book a party, you can call or go to their website,, to view photos and hear what customers are saying about their party experiences.
Exciting plans are also underway for a “Re-Grand Opening” event to be held on August 7 from 12-5 p.m., coinciding with a world-wide contest to set the world record for the most games bowled in one day. The “Re-Grand Opening” event will include a free game of bowling for everyone who comes, giveaways, raffles, prizes, and a whole lot more! Be sure to save the date, August 7. Join the fun while we help try to set a World Record!

This event is held to let people know just how fun bowling is and to encourage those who have always wanted to bowl or join a league to come out and give it a try. Bay Lanes is currently forming leagues and is looking for those interested in joining a mixed couples league, parent/child league, Saturday morning youth league, or Senior league.    

We would like to invite those who have not been in since our takeover to “take a new look at an old friend.” The interior has been updated and the clean, bright, atmosphere has been a welcome change for the community.

Bay Lanes is located at 27229 Wolf Road. For more information, go to, become a Bay Lanes Facebook Fan, or call 440-871-0911 to speak with Mark.
