Tournaments

Notice to our customers: In order to ensure the safety of our customers and staff, Agawam Bowl will be opening in stages as we complete annual maintenance and updates required to meet COVID-19 workplace safety standards. Initially we will be opening for league bowling and league bowler practice only. Open Bowling will be reintroduced as soon as it is feasible. Regrettably, Birthday Parties and larger groups cannot safely be accommodated at this time.


We ask for your patience at this time. More information will be posted as it becomes available. Thank you.

The best way to reach us at this time regarding booking a future party or event is via email at agawambowlinfo@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that restrictions may change.

    A) Agawam Bowl King of the Hill average during the past two seasons (since September, 2018), if *nine* strings or more. We will have this information at the event.
    B) Composite of all 2019-2020 season ending averages, minimum *30* strings, rounding down. Travel/pro leagues are included. If you do not have all such averages, please supply the highest.
    C) Composite of current fall (minimum *15* strings) and summer 2020 (minimum *15* string) season averages, rounding down. If you do not have all such averages, please supply the highest. Your composite average for this event will include 1, 2 or 3 of the above as applicable, averaged together and rounded UP (since league averages and the composites above are rounded down).
