I am just wondering what most people pay for lineage. There is this one house that is hardly a bowling alley.. It is a recreation center and they have no clue how to run a bowling alley. No improvements. Always broken equipment or junk all over the floor, approaches and tables. They were on the verge of not being certified and "somehow" they managed to pass. It is the only house in town and the only reason I bowl there is so I can bowl a league with my Dad.
Anyway.. They are charging $14.50 lineage for winter this year. They charged $14.00 for summer telling us that was a break cause they weren't going to charge the .50 winter increase. Also, league rate is $1.00 off their normal $4.50 to $5.50 per game.

This is in Northern California about 50 miles from the Bay Area so I can imagine the cost will be higher than most of the country but this seems pretty high.

I'm bowling another league in another town with multiple alleys where the lineage is $11.75. And the alley caters to the bowlers and is putting in $300,000 in improvements over the winter. They are also kicking money into our prizefund that puts the actual lineage down to even lower. They also give us $2.00 practice rates as well as times 2 days a week where we can practice for free.

Sorry for the long rant..

So what is the going rate around the country???

I'm paying $15.25 for one league and 16.50 for the other, and league bowlers only pay $1.25 per game for practice. I'm in the Seattle area. My mom is in SoCal, and she pays over $20 for the league she is in.

Ours is $13/3 games on the Wednesday league. Open... depends on who is behind the counter. I have bowled for 3 hours and only paid $19, but I have had to pay as high as $48 for the same.

They are resurfacing this week so I went down to Plano, it was $5.25/line or $24.95/hr. I about walked out but I wanted to try the synthetic lanes with the 2Furious, and I needed to practice.

Gem and Jwill, the amount you are giving is the total of your league fees each week. Those fees are broken down to lineage, prize fund and to pay the secretary/treasure. Lineage portion is what is paid to the center for use of the lanes, the prize fund portion goes to the prize fund for the pay off at the end of the season and the sec/treas. portion is to pay that officer(s) for doing that job. This should be found in a copy of the league rules that are handed out to at least the team captain of every team.

For example, my league fees are $20 a week. Of that $20, $10.35 is for lineage, 25 cents pays the sec/treasure and the remaining $9.40 goes to the prize fund.

I think my lineage is $10.35 anyways, it might be more, I know it went up this season but can't remember the exact number. This is one of many centers in my area but the only one I bowl in right now. I'm sure it's in line with most of the other centers since last time I bowled in another center it was had similar lineage fees.

not that it really helps but thought you might be a little interested in the UK I pay 9 (approx $14) of which 7.50 ($11.50) on Lineage.

As you can see that does not leave a lot for the prize pool but that is because it is more of a social league.

I forgot to mention, my league is a mixed handicap league, but has many competitive bowlers in it of both genders.

As for practice games, I think it's $2 or $2.50 for league bowlers and it's probably $4 for non league bowlers but I can't be sure. Been a while since I've open bowled without free passes and haven't looked at the price board, if there is even one up still in a long time.

By golly, you are right! My last league is: $9 lineage, $3.50 prize and .50 Secretary.
