We seek community partners at $150 each to help with the costs of printing the certificates. As a thank you for your sponsorship, your company’s logo will appear on 5,000 cards that are distributed to every school in Fayette County. Please send us a PM on Facebook or give us a call at (304) 465-5500 if you would like to become a sponsor. All of our kids are capable of greatness! We offer this incentive as a way to encourage kids and help them focus on the priority of academics.

The Basics

Each grading period, each student in Fayette County has the opportunity to earn two free games of bowling and a free shoe rental at Pinheads Bowling Center. Any student who is either maintaining excellent grades or working hard to do better at school is eligible for this incentive.

Who Decides Who Earns It?

The certificates are awarded at the discretion of each student’s primary teacher or homeroom teacher.


Pinheads is OPEN! Our space is limited, so we recommend making a reservation in advance to guarantee your spot.

Here Are Our Current Safe & Healthy Guidelines:

  • If bowling and/or dining indoors, we ask that your group consist only of people who you already associate with regularly.
  • No more than SIX people can bowl on each lane. If you are bowling and have more than six people, no worries; you’ll just need to rent an additional lane.
  • Everyone over age 9 is required to have a mask on when entering the building and walking in any area other than your group’s designated space.
  • Once you are in your designated area (your part of the approach, bucket seats, and designated high top), you are welcome to remove your mask.
  •  We sanitize after each group leaves so that the disinfectants we use have time to dry before the next group comes in. Shoes, chairs, bowling balls, table, ball returns, etc. are all clean and ready for you!
