The Latest News from Tenpins & More
October 22, 2020
With bowling re-opened after a lengthy six month closure due to COVID-19, at 25 percent capacity and only for league bowlers, there is a pent-up demand to get rolling again. This is evidenced by the quick response to Tenpins & More premier league - the Draft Teams Classic, which kicked off last Monday with a fully-subscribed 48-person roster.
The league has attracted many of the metro area's best, including Matt Smith, Dan Brenning, Eric Espinda, Billy Grant, Pete Sheridan, Angel Ortega, Melissa Danks and recent Hawaiian star, Jason Fujimoto who transferred from duties at Hickham AFB in Honolulu to Kirtland AFB earlier this month.
It's quite a test for everyone, as the league features three different "challenge" sport shots on the competition lanes during the 31-week season, requiring thoughtful ball selection and moves on the lanes to gain maximum pinfall in the head-to-head clashes.
Other new leagues gaining traction are the six-week "Beating the Pindemic" team of four loop that starts Saturday November 7 at 5.15 pm and a Sunday afternoon family doubles that offers every bowler a special "Spongebob Squarepants" designed bowling ball at season's end.
To sign up, please drop by Tenpins & More at 1416 Deborah Road SE any day after 4 pm. Click here to go to the Leagues page and sign up online.

DeeRonn Booker, who set a California state record 879 series a few years ago, has his sights set on big scores in New Mexico too. Last Wednesday, in the Bud Trios at Tenpins & More, Booker opened with 237 and 238 before going on a rampage that netted him twenty consecutive strikes for 290 and 278 and a four game set of 1,043, with nothing less than nine pins on the first ball of any frame.
