The VSBA will return to the Roanoke Area for the 2012 VA State Open Championship. Vinton Bowling Center (Team Event) and NRV Super Bowl in Christiansburg (Singles and Doubles)will be the host sites. The last time the tournament was held in the those centers were 2008 (Vinton) and 2009 (Christiansburg). Hopefully the AC in Vinton is fixed.

Even though I bowl at Vinton I must say that the owner has got to do something about the ac.My wife and myself was in there tonite and it was like an oven and the ceiling fans offered no relief.The way I see it the owner needs to put some money into fixing the place up and making it more injoyable for people.
I bowl leage at Vinton but I know that if the ac. is not fixed alot of people will stop bowling there myself included.So Bill open your wallet and fix things like the roof and ac.

I read these negative reviews before I went there for the first time on New Years Eve, so I was a bit skeptical. To my surprise though, this place really has about the nicest lanes around. They’re a bit heavy on the oil side, but it takes about two frames to get used to. The people are not that bad at all either, the pro shop guy was very informative and the lady at the snack bar was awesome! Prices are BY FAR the best in the area, even for alcohol! If I wasn’t in a league at Lee Hi, I ‘d be up there in a heartbeat…so disregard all the nay-sayers, I was turned!

Why the Virginia Bowling Assoc. Goes to this house just floors me. The staff behind the counter are the rudest people. I am shocked that they are still around after all these years. VSBA should be ashamed

There prices are not bad easy to get some practice in but they are very rude.The man who runs the counter JD is an average house hack.The shot is easy for most.A lot of 220 average bowlers on the China so it is a joke of a shot. JD he doesn’t even have a mullet anymore,he has a skullet.

We visited the vinton bowling alley the other day and the guys behind the counter were very rude!! They acted like they didn’t want to wait on us when we got there. They gave us a lane with a group of people sitting in our chairs on our lane so we requsted another lane and the worker got very rude with us again!!! The guy would’nt give us another lane even though they had several lanes opened. We had to fuss with the worker to get our money back. I will never go back to vinton bowling alley again!!!!!!!!!

I have bowled at over 30 houses in the state of VA.I have never had such a bad experience in a bowling alley.First off the woman and the guy who works behind the counter are rude.The place is hot,and it doesn’t have a good ventilation system to remove the smoke from the center.STAY AWAY!!!

The first problem with this place is that its un-airconditioned. This is sometimes a problem when your fingers will not easily come out of the ball, its just too hot there. Second, its a very inconsistent shot and changes from week to week. On a scale of 1 – 10 I would give it a 3 maybe. I would definatly recommend any other center within 100 miles. The center also gets alot more money from leagues than other centers charge, which makes the prize money less.

I bowl 5 leagues at this center…it is the most consistent center within a 100 square mile area!!!!
