Other improvements include new awnings, new paint inside, a complete resurfacing of the lanes, new pro shop, and even a new general manager as of March 10.

Bowling is coming back at a promising rate the past few years, as several highs schools are using the facility, as Royal Z Lanes hosts Wilmington, Clinton-Massie, East Clinton and Greeneview high schools’ bowling teams.
