Most of the bowling leagues at Mt. Mesa Lanes are about 10 weeks into their season.
Currently, there are six leagues running. The only days that a league is not currently operating are Tuesday, when the lanes are closed, and Friday, when Mt. Mesa Lanes holds a no-tap tournament.
To begin the week is Monday Night Men’s league. This is a six-team league with five bowlers per team.
On Wednesday at noon, the Wednesday Ladies League takes over. This is another six-team league with four bowlers per team.
Wednesday evening is the Wednesday Mixed League. There are eight teams that compete on this night. This is also a four-person per team league.
Thursday is another mixed league as the Thursday Mixed League takes to the lanes. These teams are made up of five bowlers each.
On Saturday, it’s time for the youth bowlers of the valley to roll the bowling ball down the lane. There are six teams in the Saturday Juniors League. Three bowlers make up each team.
Finishing up the house leagues is the Sunday Laughlin League. There are eight teams that bowl a no-tap format. This is a five person team.
