May the Fourth

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... SPARE WARS. Episode IV. A Striking Hope.

It is a period of friendly war. Rebel bowlers, striking from a hidden lane, have won their first victory against the evil Kingpin Empire. During the frame, Rebel strikers managed to steal secret plans to the Kingpin's ultimate weapon, the STRIKE STAR, an armoured bowling ball with enough power to destroy all five pins.


The ESSC is excited to once again partner with Plaza Bowling Co. to bring you our next Bowling Tournament! Teams of 4 will come together in a social setting to compete for the Top Team and Top Individual scores. This is a Really Recreational event that's all about fun, and Bowling can at times come second to enjoying the party.You don't have to be an ESSC player to register and no experience is necessary; little to no experience is even preferred!

Play in ESSC's Bowing Tournament, you must.
