In 2007 I moved back to Maine after a few years away. Looking for a way to get through the long winters, I talked some friends into creating a bowling league: BowlPortland. We weren't very good but we had a blast hanging out every Tuesday. After an opening season with 12 teams, Portland was talking and we grew to 22 teams for the 2nd season. At the end of the that year I hatched plans to build a bowling alley in downtown Portland to host this league. I found a business partner in Justin, an amazing location in an old warehouse in Bayside, and BowlPortland moved into its new digs in 2010.  Bayside Bowl was built to host friends out to have a good time. Over our seven years that's exactly what we've done, not just for the community that started it all, but for countless folks from Maine and around the world. It's easy to see and feel the sense of fun and community whenever you visit, from the staff to the leagues to the groups just here for dinner and drinks. Even the PBA has fallen in love with the energy here and has a tour stop at Bayside Bowl annually that many of the pros have referred to as the best stop on tour. So come on in and check us out...relax, have a good time, and be part of our story. See you on the lanes.
