Bowling in Reno is a big deal. The National Bowling Stadium, the only facility of its kind in the world, (referred to as the “Taj Mahal of Tenpins” by The Los Angeles Times) is dedicated to the classic sport of bowling. Living up to its name, the Stadium, featuring 78 lanes, was designed with the tournament bowler in mind, but the versatility of the facility allows it to be transformed into several configurations to suit any event and is available for private parties, business meetings and bowling functions.
Looking to host your next meeting or party at the Bowling Stadium? Open to the public, Kingpin Club by Brunswick features 10 professional lanes, a full bar and multiple HD flat screens in a trendy, modern environment on the first-floor lobby of the NBS.
For groups up to 100, the Kingpin Club can be utilized to practice before the big tournament or booked for a Glow Bowl or team-building event. With top quality food and beverage offerings, Kingpin will take your event to the next level.
