El-Ra Bowl has a wide variety of leagues to fit the needs of any bowler. We offer bowling leagues for adults, seniors, youth, couples, and families. Whether you have lots of experience or just starting, there is a league for you. League bowling is a great way to meet new friends, stay active, and get out of the house. Our youth programs offer certified coaching and end with a pizza/trophy party. Let us know what type of bowling league you are looking for and we can help match you up. Teams and individuals are welcome. (608)757-3020

Adult Leagues

    Sunday 4 Man          Sunday 10:45 A.M.         4/team

    Great league for men that work second shift or other occupations that prevent them from bowling during the week days. This league is a nice mix of both beginner and experienced bowlers.

    End your weekend with a little competition on the lanes. Couples and mixed teams are welcome.

    Monday Madness          Monday 7:30 pm         3/team

    A nice start time for those who can't bowl early in the evening. This league also has a nice blend of scratch and beginning bowlers. Fun is always the number one objective!

    Sportsman's          Wednesday 6:15 pm         5/team

    The oldest existing league in Janesville, dating back to the 30's. Started at Cannons in downtown Janesville. Moved to El-Ra shortly after it opened in 1959.

    Thursday Ladies          Thursday 5:30 pm         3/team

    Brown's Oilers          Thursday 7:35 pm         4/team

    This league, like many of our other leagues, was a classified scratch league. In recent years it has adapted to a handicap/coed format to open up the fun to more bowlers.

    Misfits          Friday 7:00 pm         4/team

    A true example of a coed fun league. This group knows how to have a good time while splattering the pins.

    A true couples league with two pairs of couples on each team. This league has an every other week schedule to build some flexibility into you schedule.

Senior Leagues

    Tuesday Drop-ins          Tuesday 1:00 pm         Individual

    Wednesday Senior Fun        Wed 1:00 pm        4/team

    A great afternoon senior league. Weekly fun games include "bowling for dollars" and "mystery score". The only requirement is that you're here to have fun!

Adult/Youth Leagues

All youth bowlers receive their very own bowling ball that is custom fit and drilled to their hand! This league runs twice per year. Once in the winter (January-March) and once in the summer (May-August). Come join the FUN!
