PONCA CITY — Bowling leagues will be return to action in Kay County soon.

Ponca City Bowling Association manager Duane Hunt said that the sale and closing of Ponca Bowl in March resulted in Ponca City leagues to end their seasons early or move to one of two other bowling centers.

“Fortunately, there are two bowling centers in Kay County for people to enjoy bowling and join bowling leagues,” said Hunt. “Lucas Lanes in Blackwell and The Hub in Tonkawa both have league schedules offering a number of leagues for people regardless of skill level.”

Hunt said most of the leagues are mixed and that there are women’s leagues.  

“Leagues bowl on weekday nights and during the afternoon,” said Hunt.  “There is also a youth league where bowlers earn college scholarship funds just for bowling.  The Senior Citizen league is one of the larger leagues in the Ponca City Area and provides senior’s an opportunity to exercise and socialize with others. Bowling is a sport to be enjoyed by all regardless of age. All are welcomed to join in a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.  Officials of the various leagues have set dates and times for organizational meetings.”
