EIU Bowling Lanes League Information

Whether it's to competitively bowl, meet new people, or just to have fun, come and join one of our leagues being offered at the EIU Bowling Lanes! Our returning league is the faculty/staff league, which is open to any EIU faculty/staff member. We have also begun a student league this fall semester consisting of 6 teams! If you missed joining this fall, then sign up for next semester for the spring student league! Check out the dates and prices below!

All league members will receive a Panther Pass, and the last week of each league will also be for our bowling bash, in which there will be food, drinks, prizes, awards, raffles, and discount bowling! And don't forget about intramural bowling, which is through the Intramural Department at the Student Recreation Center! Check out all of the details below!

Panther Pass

All league members will receive a Panther Pass that gives each member $1/game bowling, and includes free shoe rental! It can be used all day, Sunday-Saturday, and cannot be used during Cosmic Bowling or with the Dine-n-Bowl Special. The pass expires after each semester, and is only valid during the semester in which the individual is a league member. For the Faculty/Staff League, the Panther Pass will be valid for both the fall and spring semesters.

Bowling Bash
