This center is missed along with all the employees.

For all those people making negative comments, let me let you in on the way it is…
Don’t blame local center management on the place needing repairs or having to show your ID in the bar (even though they know you and you are obviously old enough to drink). The whole problem has it’s roots in South Carolina. That is were the company that owns the place resides.

This place needs some help. Employees are the best thing they have. Lanes have no real consistent shot and it wore out. I much rather go to petro. Everything needs to be adjusted here

Conditions, admittedly, could be better. Same goes for its locale, but since I was raised in a similar neighborhood, what with people walking the streets and whatnot, I don’t mind at all. It’s like a second home to me. 😛
Anyway, besides employment that appears to be a tad on the scarce side, they always keep things positive. For fun with a few friends or a few games of serious practice for you league bowlers, I do highly recommend a go there, especially if you want a location for a good party. I’ve bowled whilst the entire second half of the building was full with one kid’s birthday and everyone left extremely happy with how things had gone. By all means, give it a try.

I must say this facility needs to be brought up to date.
We did have a large group with us and we were a little “rowdy” as it was our daughter in laws birthday but I must say the staff had great personalities and that really made a difference to us we had the best time we had as a family in 10 years I highly recommend this alley if you are looking for clean family fun I would also like thank the staff for there paitence

Great place

I must say after everthing I heard about this center I was kinda scared to go but considering the large group we had and the great special they were running we decided to give it a try. I must say we had a great time. I have always been a petro customer but now I will be reconsidering this place is nothing like i have heard My family and I all enjoyed our visit.

why the owners of this center never show up or try to talk to the customers i am sure that their investment does not matter, they are probably 10 million dollar owners and do not care about the small people that helped them from the beginning

I read all the previous comments and totally agree the manager needs to make big improvements in this center everything in there is really outdated.It is a clean facility but very outdated. I recently had a birthday party here and was very happy the manager did make sure we had a awesome time and had alot of patience with my group she has great people skills but really needs to devote time into bringing this center up to 2009 her choice in colors was different kinda strange but overall I really enjoyed my visit and would come back here over petro anytime

sorry to dissapoint some but this center is in for arude awakening, the manager of this center is out for her funds only she does not care about repairs or the customers ,the owners of this establishment should come forward and take care of their investment, because the manager charges the few leagues triple or 4 times what should be paid she is never there ,never try to update, never try to keep customers happy it could be a great place for bowling entertainment but they need some one who wants it to be a better place and increase the profits honestly.

IDing in the bar is out of control I have bowled at this center since 1984 and now have to show my id for a been I am 57 years old. Who makes the rules. I will nolonger be drinking beer here maybe even moving my team to petro I know i am not the only one

I bowl on two leagues during the fall, Tuesdays and Fridays. I have to bring my 2 year old grandaughter. If the nursery will no longer be open i do not know if i can bowl or not. Please consider leaving it open.

they have 4 walls and a roof and that is about it. They need to change everything under the roof. The only reason I still go is they are actually nice to their customers which is more than I can say for Petro. If Petro would Fire their employees and hire sports centers it would be a kick butt bowling alley.

I am really upset to find that there will be no more daycare at this bowling center. They will lose alot of bowlers.

Comment Date: 5/8/2009 Name: Sheila
When I first came to bowl here I wasnt sure by the looks of it, but the people seemed nice enough so I gave it a try. The only reason I left Petro Bowl was b/c yall have day care. Know I find out that there will be no more daycare after this season. I am very dissapointed ! I have been bowling for 6 yrs now and love it, but I have twin boys ( age 3 ) and if there is no more daycare I wont be able to bowl anymore. This is my second year here and have been bowling two days a week, for those of us with kids this looks like the end of the line. There will be alot of people leaving the leages if we cant get it back. I really hope there is something that can be done.I hate to leave !

This place needs alot of help ! REMODEL !! Nice place to be over all, good people, but building needs lots of help. A good scrub down, maybe some new carpet and tile would be a nice step forward

I have been very shocked by the transformation of this center I quit bowling at sports center 3 years ago and heard from other bowlers the changes that have been made I decided to go back as an open bowler and have been very pleased with the changes. I plan on going back as a league bowler in he fall keep up the good work

Since i started bowling at sports center the staff has been extremely nice to me. They do need to update their facility “ALOT” but the people that bowl there are great.

Comment Date: 9/8/2008 Name: Daniel
great experience had a good time staff was very helpful.It needs newer stuff but enjoyed it very much —– easier for the handicapped children which was the most important to me

Comment Date: 8/2/2008 Name: Larry
Thank you so much for showing me and my family a GREAT time we will be returning to this place 100 % fun We liked how friendly everyone was very different then the other place we have in town really enjoyed this place

Comment Date: 7/12/2008 Name: Ronnie
Just finished bowling the state tournament there. I wonder if all the LRE bowling centers are as dumpy as this one. Fix the place up and make it a more modern. Staff there was extremely pleasant.

This if for Eric 4/24, I am one of those Punk kids that Petro Bowl is putting thru College. Petro has put over 30 such kids(punks) thru School. Thank you Petro Bowl. If you would like
to talk to me face to face, I am still working there.

It is easy to clean a Bowling Alley if you never
have anyone in the place. Petro Bowl always have
plenty of customers to interact with, but Petro
is always clean.

For Randy: An Alley is a spot between 2 buildings
where you put trash cans. Petro Bowl is a Bowling

Petro Bowl has great birthday party packages for my kids. They are one of the cheapest in town and most family’s don’t mind going to petro bowl for the parties so i have the best turnout. They have updated the center with new carpet and scoring system which makes it the best place in town.

Every time i have tried to go to sport center for our company lunch this center has been closed. Petro Bowl has always been open with nice employees who have helped us in anyway possible. The guy at the desk even helped with my bowling some. Sport Center is in a very bad location which makes me to scared to bring my kids there. Petro bowl is more of a family environment for my kids.

Comment Date: 5/27/2008 Name: Randy
This alley is way better than Petro bowl.Thats all i have to say.

Enjoyed my visit to Lakecharles! The staff gave me a wonderful time! Very helpful! Would enjoy going back here

Decent lane conditions usually. Always have lanes available (That alone makes it better than Petro Bowl). Employees are more mature and not just a bunch of punk kids like Petro Bowl. It’s even cleaner. It has a ton of potential to be an awesome place but I think they are just in a bad location.
