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.

Bowling, Restaurant, and Pet-Friendly Patio are Open

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:

  • 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 masks must leave their mask on, except to take a bite of food, enjoy a drink of a cold beverage, or standing on the approach and bowling.
  •  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 when you enter the building
  • We have a total of 15 hand sanitizing stations throughout Pinheads for your use.
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, please do not enter the building.

Pet-Friendly Patio Guidelines:
  • Furry Friends are welcome to dine with you at our outdoor patio space. We have doggy treats and a designated potty area for pets. 
  • Please enter with pets through the back patio entrance instead of entering through the building.
  • Our outdoor tables are more-than-adequately spaced for physical distancing, so no masks are required. You masks are required, however, to enter into the building so we suggest you bring your mask with you.
