Summer bowling ball leagues look to be the choice of local bowlers. What’s better than bowling a summer league and receiving a new bowling ball at the league’s end? These leagues are short (15 weeks) and open to new and regular league bowlers. Don’t have a team? There are openings for individuals and it’s a great way to meet new friends!
AMF Southwest Lanes Super Ball league started this past Thursday night, May 16, with 18 teams and room for a few more. League bowls at 7 p.m. Thursday nights, teams are trios and cost is $16 per week per bowler. Call AMF Southwest at (661) 834-2695 for further information.

As the 2012-13 season came to an end, the Bakersfield Scratch Trio league (the only scratch league in Bakersfield) bowled its league roll-off on Monday night, May 6, at Regency Lanes to determine the league’s champion team. Teams that had won each round composed the roll-off. The first match of the night was between Team 9 (Jack Dunn, Cody Lewis and Kent Gray) against Team 8 (Tim Henson, PD Richardson and Joe Ramirez). Although Richardson rolled a solid 240 game, it wasn’t enough for his team as Team 8 was defeated by Team 9 603-655. Team 9 then went on to bowl against Team 1 (Mike Mayo, Mark Bess and Robert Mayo). Robert Mayo posted a nice 247 game, but so did Team 9’s Cody Lewis. Team 1 still could not beat a steady Team 9 and lost 612-635. Team 9 then came up against Team 7 (Hector Santiago, Aris C. Anadilla and Aris Anadilla). Team 9’s Kent Gray tried to hold Team 1 off with a nice 233 game, but Team 7 was just too tough to tackle and Team 9 lost 630-678. The final match of the night was between Team 7 and top-seeded Team 10 (Diz Francisco, Sean Ambrose and Zack Newman). Newman came out swinging with a nice 246 game but it wasn’t enough to keep his team on top as Team 7 fired back with Santiago’s 232, Aris C. Anadilla’s 209 and Aris Anadilla’s 236 to defeat and become the league champions 677-593.
The Bakersfield Scratch Trio league will return this fall for the 2013-14 season. If you are interested in bowling in this league, please contact Diz Francisco at (661) 599-3097.
Mega Ball 2013 – it’s the 18th annual for this summertime favorite for local bowlers! This year’s league will have an even bigger field of bowlers as we welcome Taft bowlers to join in on this year’s Summer Mega Ball league.
Taft’s West Side Lanes already has 49 bowlers who are already rolling in their division at Westside Recreation & Parks District. West Side Lanes will be sending their top team to meet Regency Lanes’ Wild Card team in the first match of this year’s Mega Ball Roll-Off at the end of the league. Taft bowlers will also be bowling in the Mega Ball Sweeper at season’s end at Regency Lanes.
